Les Turner ALS Events

Tag Days

May is ALS Awareness Month — and part of that awareness is achieved through the  Les Turner ALS Foundation Tag Days drives. During the month of May, thousands of volunteers take to the streets — standing at intersections, shopping malls and train stations in yellow vests to collect donations from passersby and raise awareness. Since 1997, Tag Days drives have raised nearly $1.7 million to support the Les Turner ALS Foundation! The genius of Tag Days is that it requires little more than a yellow vest, a can for donations and two hours or more from a willing volunteer. It may not seem like much, but it all adds up making a big difference!
