Host Your Own Community Partner Event!
The 9th Annual Mackler 5K Run
What better way to show your support than to consider planning your own fundraising event!
We can’t do it alone! The ALS Staff depends on community members to help spread the word about ALS and to raise funds to help support PALS and their families throughout our region. A community partner event is an activity that, for the most part, is devised, planned, and managed by a community member or group. So far in 2012, The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter has been able to raise more than $125,000 from over 65 Community Partner Events organized by people just like you! From bake sales to golf outings, people have been creating awareness about ALS and the Chapter’s programs and services to their network of friends and family in a meaningful and personal way. You have the ability to reach large audiences who are entirely new to the organization and empower them to support the Association and create a truly rewarding experience for all involved.

Planning your own event can be a great way to include family, friends, co-workers and members of your community in your fight against ALS. The staff here at the chapter office can help by providing ideas, brochures, signs, raffle/auction items, and a speaker if available. We can also include your event on our Event Calendar and our monthly E-Newsletter to help spread the word! If you are looking to get started, please download our COMMUNITY PARTNER EVENT MANUAL. If you have any questions, please email Ali Nielsen at Ali@alsphiladelphia.org or call at 215-643-5434 x46.
