Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within 2 to 5 years of diagnosis. There is no cure for ALS.

On September 30, 2017, Whitefish United Methodist Church joined Dr. Erik Schroeder and Team Schroeder at the 2017 Walk to Defeat ALS in Missoula.
