There's no doubt that the Portland Walk to Defeat ALS was a great success--the organization started their drive with a goal of raising $335,000 and this year's walkers blew right through it, raising an amazing $447,621.62 total.

We couldn't be prouder that our team, Arne's Warriors, raised more funds than any other team and was able to contribute $70,488.00 to make sure that those diagnosed with ALS continue to receive the great services provided by the ALS Association both locally and nationally.

Our thanks go out to all of the teams who walked with us, and to the ALS Association of Oregon and SW Washington for their good work.
