The 2.5 kilometre walk will begin in Whiteshell Provincial Park on the Trans-Canada Trail at 11 a.m. Registration is at 10:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the event help researchers to find a cure for ALS, and also helps to provide support services to families affected by the disease through the ALS Society of Manitoba.

Following the walk, participants can enjoy the 9th Annual Whiteshell Music Festival.
