Alex, his family and his
colleagues from "Hawaii Five-0" are united in the fight against the fatal
You can support them!
In 2014, Alex officially joined the ALS Association in its fight against the disease ALS and held a speech at the Walk to Defeat ALS in 2014. In these annual walks, ALS patients and their families, friends and supporters raise awareness of this terrible disease. But they also raise funds for the work of the ALS Association which provides assistance to families affected by ALS and helps to finance ALS research.
New fans might not know that Alex's mother-in-law died from ALS - and his son Lion never got to know his grandma. To the present day, the family of Alex's wife Malia still raises funds in the annual Walk to Defeat ALS in Hawaii.
Here's a radio interview from 2014 in which Fred Fisher
(ALS Association) and Alex talk about ALS, Alex's involvement and how the disease has affected
Alex's family. Alex also speaks about his mother who is a nurse.
"Hawaii Five-0" (H50) is unofficially represented in the Walk to
Defeat ALS every year by the "H50 ALS Warriors" team led by Eric (H50 crafts
services) who is joined in the
walk by local and visiting H50 fans. If you live abroad and
can't participate in the walk, you can help the team
raise funds for the ALS Association by making an online donation - which is what I do every
NEW FUNDRAISER by the "H50 ALS Warriors" team for the 2018 "Walk to Defeat ALS" in Hawaii on Sept. 15, 2018:
Please note that I will be there live and in person to participate this year - and donate, as usual. I will actively promote this fundraiser from Sept. 1 because my focus in August is on the usual fundraiser in our birthday campaign for Alex (benefitting Taylor's Gift Foundation) - BUT, of course, you can already donate to the ALS through this fundraising page and support our team - Thank you!
Here's a nice look back to 2014 - Some photos of Alex with
great fans at the Walk to Defeat ALS:

Here are video clips showing "Hawaii Five-0" Boss Peter doing the ALS Ice
Video clip 1: Peter asks the H50 cast to participate, too
Video clip 2: Peter dumps the ice over his head
Video clip 3: Peter asks you to donate to the ALS Assocation
Last but not least, here are some old collages for your inspiration...
When there's no current fundraiser for the ALS Walk etc., you can always donate directly to the ALS Association through its page www.alsa.org, where you also find plenty of useful information.
Thank you - Mahalo - Danke - Merci - Gracias - Grazie
