The James P. Hinchliffe 5K Run/Walk for ALS was founded in 2011 by Matt & Dillon Hinchliffe in memory of their father who lost his battle with ALS in 2004. The annual race, held in Glens Falls, helps to raise awareness, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to the ALS Association Upstate New York Chapter to be used for research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy.

The race incurs no administrative costs, with all organization hours being donated by the family and friends of Jim. Donations from 2011 - 2014 have totaled $35,000!
