For the first time since 2019, the much-anticipated ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and MS (multiple sclerosis) Walk for Living will be held in-person. A popular event on Boston’s North Shore, the 14th Annual ALS & MS Walk for Living is a testament to the remarkable residents at the Leonard Florence Center for Living, operated by Chelsea Jewish Lifecare. They show the world how they battle ALS and MS with courage, grace, sprit and humor. Additionally, this year’s Walk will honor another group of amazing individuals: the friends and neighbors who live on Admiral’s Hill.
As the country’s first urban model Green House® skilled nursing facility, the Center cares for more individuals living with ALS than anywhere else in the world. Residents, many who are completely immobilized, control lights, turn on the TV, call for the elevator, and open doors with help of a computer and sensor that tracks head and eye movements. This revolutionary technology enables them to move independently through the entire residence, vastly improving their quality of life. The Stein Family Center for Well-Being, the only Green House® ventilator program in the country, opened in 2020.
Every single dollar raised goes directly back to patient care and programs for the ALS and MS residents.
The two-mile walk in the heart of scenic Admiral’s Hill enables residents to participate in wheelchairs and ventilators as well as by foot.
Following the walk, there will be a barbecue hosted by Chili’s, face painting, live dance performances, a petting zoo, popcorn and cotton candy. The donation fee includes a Walk for Living t-shirt, all food and activities.
The Walk for Living is one of the few walks that are dog-friendly. Platinum level sponsors include M&T Banks and Wilmington Trust; Gold Level A.H.O.H. Independent Newspaper Group is the media sponsor.
