Frequently Asked Questions
Why did Liver Life Walk go virtual?
The American Liver Foundation’s greatest concern is the health and well-being of liver patients and those who care for them. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in compliance with the CDC and government guidelines, we made the decision to suspend all ALF in-person gatherings in 2020. To protect the health and safety of our community, we have also redefined our Liver Life Walks. Instead of hosting large gatherings throughout the year, we will bring together the liver community of supporters across the country via a virtual gathering on one date – Saturday, October 24
What activities are included during the Virtual Liver Life Walk?
This multi-week experience includes guided self-care practices, family friendly wellness activities, engaging fundraising challenges, and inspiring video messaging.
