Don't walk the flat roads.
Walk paths that no one has walked before, so that you leave traces and not just dust.

What is ALS & why the donation run?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

ALS stands for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Eventually, patients can no longer control their muscles and they become paralyzed. Most patients die within five years of being diagnosed with the disease. To date, there are no successful forms of therapy, nor are there any cures.

Only together can we accelerate the ALS research, so every donation helps us.
Here🔗 you can read more about its causes, symptoms and effects.

Do your part to help fight  ALS disease!

Become part of an amazing community, donate your kilometers and help us raise funds for ALS research.

Whether you are an experienced competitive runner, hobby runner or casual runner, whether you run alone or in a group, walk or run: every kilometer counts!

 100% of every cent is going to ALS research.

Join us on the journey and

this is only the beginning

The donations go to our partner, the FaceALS Foundation.

Together we want to raise at least 50,000 €.

The donations go to our partner, the faceALS Foundation. The faceALS Foundation emerged from the faceALS initiative, which was established in 2012; the initiators were Dr. Heiko Ott and Prof. Christian Schreiber, Dr. Heiko Ott and Karl-Heinz Zacher. The reason for their immense commitment to research ALS, were the ALS diseases of Nina Zacher and Prof. Schreiber. Until her death in May 2016, Nina Zacher contributed with many appearances on TV and radio to keep ALS in the awareness of the public. In the meantime, the faceALS Foundation is the world's only self-operating foundation in the field of research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The faceALS Foundation has its own laboratories and scientific staff from various disciplines. With 2018, the faceALS Foundation was able to initiate the multicenter clinical study "Detection of ALS-specific toponomes", which should finally enable firm diagnosis of ALS, participants are well-known ALS outpatient clinics from Munich and Ulm.

Since the beginning of 2020, the faceALS Foundation has been planning a monocentric "Proof-of-Concept" study, which is to establish an effective therapy for ALS; the aim is to intervene in the immune system in a modulating way; a so-called "Compassionate Use" has provided very promising data in advance.

The consortium formed by Karl-Heinz Zacher, which consists of partners from science, neurology, transfusion medicine, laboratory diagnostics and technology companies, should enable the rapid implementation of the therapy study.

We use Strava as a tracking app, but you can track your miles however you want. Feel free to use your favorite app.

If you are using Strava, all you need to do is become a member of the Strava Club and we will automatically track your kilometers.

If you are not using Strava, think about creating an account, you can really include all your favorite apps or use the following form to upload your data manually.

You can find the Facebook frame after you follow on Facebook via your profile picture settings or activate it via this link and show the whole world that you are part of a great cause! THANK YOU!
