With the state of emergency imposed by the Provence of BC mid in July, we regret to announce the postponement of the 2021 ALS rally due to forest fires in the interior. The state of emergency announced by the province requires that the Lillooet airstrip be available for the air fire fighting crews at all times – so unavailable for the rally’s use. Our thoughts are with those affected by the forest fires.We’re devastated that we will not be able to host an event in 2021. We have already secured the same locations for June 12-13th, 2021 and will be hosting this years proposed event during ALS Month next year. We are deeply grateful for the the overwhelming amount of support and growth the event enjoyed in 2021 and we have you to thank. We appreciate your understanding and please feel free to reach out with any questions regarding the postponement.
Each year going forward we want to share an ALS patients story. With the lack of awareness surrounding ALS, we want to use our platform to highlight their struggles on their mission to overcome the challenges associated with their diagnosis. These individuals wake up everyday on a quest to fight a battle that currently has no possibility for victory.
“Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles.”
Most people recognize the disease from the “ice bucket challenge” from 2014; a viral movement which brought global awareness and donations to the cause. The Sea to Sky ALS Rally hopes to build a community that will continue to support and participate in this event annually. The goal is to continue the expansion of awareness for ALS though a weekend packed with automotive activities you wont find anywhere else. All proceeds of the event will go directly towards the establishment of the new ALS Center Of Hope at the UBC campus. With your support, the Sea to Sky ALS Rally can drastically improve the lives of those living in BC diagnosed with this fatal illness.
