About The Rally
What Is The Sea To Sky ALS Rally?
The Sea to Sky ALS Rally was founded in the spring of 2019 after the news that my father, Greg Smith, was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 51. Combining my passion for cars with a cause that has directly affected so many seemed like a natural way to raise money and awareness towards this massively underfunded and poorly understood disease.
The event has been recognized both years by ALS BC as they have awarded the ALS Rally: Volunteer of the year award (2019) and top third party fundraiser (2020).

What Is ALS, & Where Do The Funds Go?
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 won’t 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.

2022 ALS Rally
This year we are keeping our focus to help fund the establishment of the new ALS Center of Hope. The goal is to help fund a full time ALS specialist which would open all sorts of opportunities for the ALS community in B.C. What is currently missing is the opportunity for ALS patients in BC to participate in clinical trials leaving them with one option, bi-weekly flights to various clinics across North America to get the treatment they need. This is not only dangerous for those in the later stages of ALS, but also a massive financial burden for those who chose to fight the disease. In order to address this gap, the ALS rally hopes to help fund the establishment of: Clinical research in BC, clinical trials held in BC, as well as a Clinician/Scientist hired to champion and run the program.
