October 21, 2017 will be the date for Hop'eration ALS.
The event will be held at The Rock Shrimp Co., 4775 Lake Ave., Rochester, NY. This will be a beer event with a number of Rochester area breweries designing a special beer just for this event. Each brewery will develop a beer and they will all be using a specialty hop designed just for raising money for ALS research. The Hops were donated by Loftus Ranches, one of the largest hop farms in America. Loftus Ranches is a huge supporter of ALS research and puts on the Ales for ALS event every year where they donate hops to breweries across America and then a portion of the beer sales goes to ALS Therapy Development Institute.
Advanced tickets will be available online through Eventbrite. Tickets will be $20 in advance and $25 at the door. All money will go to De-Feet ALS, Inc. a nonprofit corporation raising money for ALS research.
Food will be available off The Rock Shrimp Co. menu and Chris Moore Acoustic will be providing the music.
Set this date aside and come out for some great beer, music and a lot of fun!
Sampler Glasses to all patrons
Five breweries located in the Rochester, NY area will be brewing a special beer for the event. They will be using a hop blend which includes six different hop varieties. The hops are coming from Loftus Ranches in the Yakima Valley in Washington State. This will give you the opportunity to see how different style and flavored beers can be created while using the same hops.
We wish to thank the breweries listed below for joining us for this event. Donating their time and ingredients to create something special. Also Loftus Ranches for the hops and The Rock Shrimp Co. for hosting the event. This type of event has never been done before in Rochester, so lets have a great turn out and make this an annual fundraiser.
Unforunately ALS is still a disease that has no cure. We hope by doing our part we can see this terrable disease cured.
This Event has passed, but will return in 2018. Keep checking!!
June 3rd 2017 will be the date for the second ALS 12 Hour Trail Race. This year’s race has added a 5 mile race also. The 12 Hour Race will have three separate categories. 12 Hour Solo, 2 Person Relay and a 4 Person Relay.
The race will take place in Northampton Park, 55 Hubbell Rd., Spencerport, NY at the sledding hill. The start and finish are located at the top of the hill and the trails are on the east side of the park. The loop is approximately 2.5 miles long.
Like last year, runners are encouraged to have their own support, but water will be provided along with other nutrition. There will be no cups allowed so make sure you bring along a water bottle. Teams and runners can set up their own tents (must be 10’x10’ or smaller) at the start/finish only. Runners will pass the start/finish on every loop to ensure we haven’t lost anyone.
Prizes will be awarded to top finishers.
Friends and family are encouraged to come out and cheer on their runners and enjoy the day.
The 12 Hour race starts at 7:30 am and the 5-mile race will start at 9:00 am.
