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.
Until 2018, "Hawaii Five-0" (H50) was unofficially represented in the Walk to
Defeat ALS by the "H50 ALS Warriors" team led by Eric (H50 craft
services). Fans living abroad could also simply make an online donation to help
the team raise funds for the fight against ALS and to support families affected
In 2018, I participated together with Eric and some fans - and we also made a donation, of course.
A friend of mine lost a family member to ALS and told me what an absolutely horrible disease it is. So I participated in memory of this family member but also because Alex inspired me and other fans by his own support in 2014.
If you want to participate in the walk in 2019 (You
might meet me there...), you'll find all the necessary information on this page:
If you want to support the team that Alex's sister-in-law belongs to, choose the team "ALS Ohana" as the recipient of your donation:
Here's a look back to 2014 - Some photos of Alex with

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.
