Tour du ALS
Together we kick ALS out of the world!
9th edition: 11th of June 2020
Under the slogan "Get on your feet to beat ALS" Thursday the 11th of June 2020, hundreds of cyclists, runners and hikers climb the Mont Ventoux together with ALS patients to raise money in the fight against ALS, PLS & PSMA. Tour du ALS is the largest event organized annually by the ALS Netherlands Foundation.
Dear Tour du ALS participant and volunteer,
Today we have as organizer of Tour du ALS with pain in our hearts decided to cancel the Tour du ALS, which would take place on June 11th for the 9th time. Given the developments of the coronavirus, we are forced to take this decision, because the health and safety of all ALS patients, participants and other attendees is our first priority. Furthermore, it is not financially justifiable to go through with the organization in these circumstances.
That Tour du ALS in 2020 does not go through undoubtedly raises many questions. The coming days we will work hard to bring all the consequences in the picture and decide how to deal with membership fees, collected sponsorship etc. We will have by Thursday, April 2nd more clarity and information which will be shared with you as you are used to from us.
The ALS League will continue its hard work to raise money for ALS, because our fight against this merciless disease continues.
Let us in these uncertain times take care of each other and ourselves!
With kind regards,
Team Tour du ALS
ALS League Belgium
