22nd Annual Cliff Walk

22nd Annual Cliff Walk for A.L.S. Fundraiser

In loving memory of Clifford Jordan, Jr., Edward J. Sciaba, Sr. and Janice Ferrara

Families, volunteers, donors, patients, and sponsors dedicated their time to support our 2018 Cliff Walk on Sunday, September 9, 2018 at DCR Scusset Beach Reservation.

Together we raised over $170,000 for the fight against ALS and we're still counting. These funds support our In House Patient Programs  and research headed by ALS Therapy Development Institute.

This year’s top fundraising teams were:

  1. Jeremy & Shelly Dorfman & Team David (once again!)
  2. Patricia O’Connell & This Little Light
  3. Mary Vagenas & Team Georgios

Winners in the Children’s division were:

  1. Olivia Heffernan & Team Martha
  2. Alexa Scarpato & Team Sparkettes
  3. Kayla Shubert & Team ALS Haters

We had some excellent entries in the coloring contest (see the photos!) but Lily MacDonald came away with the win! Congrats Lily!

The Cliff Walk is our signature fundraising event, with funds raised supporting families affected by ALS throughout New England. If you have been personally touched by ALS, you know of the emotional, physical, and financial devastation the disease causes, so you understand how much difference the ALS Family Charitable Foundation's unique support programs can make. Among the services we provide families affected by ALS are:

  • Aid respite care to allow caregivers to take crucial breaks
  • Help pay utility bills
  • Assist with holiday and back-to-school expenses
  • Sponsor summer camp tuition
  • Fund getaways and vacations that help families make memories while they are able
  • Underwrite college scholarships
