Sycuan Donates $5,000 to the ALS Association

October 15, 2020

Sycuan Casino Resort proudly presented a $5,000 check to the ALS Association Greater San Diego Chapter in support of their 2020 Virtual Walk to Defeat ALS. Sycuan has supported the ALS Association for more than 15 years including their Walk to Defeat ALS and Annual ALS Golf Classic at Singing Hills Golf Resort.

“Everyone remembers the popular Ice Bucket Challenge and the impact that the challenge had on the ALS community,” said Steve Becvar, executive director at the ALS Association Greater San Diego Chapter. “Sycuan has supported our organization well before the Ice Bucket Challenge, during and after. Their support is unwavering and we are extremely grateful.”

The San Diego Walk to Defeat ALS

The Walk to Defeat ALS draws people of all ages and athletic abilities coming together to honor a loved one with the disease, to remember those who have passed and to show their support for the cause.

This year’s Walk to Defeat ALS on Sunday October 18 has gone “Virtual” to keep the health and wellbeing of the entire ALS Community as the number one priority. “Walk Your Way” is the 2020 event theme, which refers to the many different ways people can participate virtually, while maintaining physical distances and still raising money to help people, families and caretakers affected by ALS.

To sign up and participate in this year’s virtual walk, please visit Walk to Defeat ALS.
