19th Annual Cliff Walk®

The 19th Annual "Cliff Walk" For A.L.S. Sponsored by Superior Rail & Iron Works Inc. will be held on Sunday, September 13, 2015 

How it all started 
Each September, our signature event – The “Cliff Walk®” for A.L.S., takes place along the Cape Cod Canal. This tradition began in 1997, when 35 year-old Cliff Jordan had been living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease for two years; his ability to speak or swallow had been taken by this incapacitating disease. 

Cliff decided to hold a fundraising walk along the Cape Cod Canal accompanied by friends and family with proceeds going to Dr. Brown, a leader in A.L.S. research, who today works at Umass Memorial Medical Center and Chairs their Neurology Department. With only three week’s notice, the first walk drew sixty people and raised $6,000.  While Cliff rode his bike seven miles closer to a cure, he was also marking the start of an amazing tradition.  

In January of 1998, Edward J. Sciaba lost his battle with A.L.S., and that Spring the disease also stole the life of Cliff Jordan.  Brought together by tragic circumstances, Donna and Mary Ann joined forces to continue the walk to honor and help all of the individuals and families touched by this disease.

Last year we had a record breaking turnout of 1,500 people and raised over $200,000 making it our most successful "Walk"to date.
Thank you to everyone who has been apart of this amazing journey with us. Hope to see you in September!
