Brigance Brigade Foundation 5.7K Championship Event

Join the Brigance Brigade Foundation on Sunday, April 29th, 2018 at 9:00 am for the 5th annual 5.7K Championship Event at Baltimore’s beautiful Canton Waterfront Park (3001 Boston St, Baltimore, MD 21224).

Not local? Virtual Racer registrations are also available!

(Team SpeakLife, you'll be joining us as "Virtual Racers," too!)

This year we will race, run, walk, stroll, roll, and raise funds to help ALS families thrive, just in time to kick off the month of May -- ALS Awareness Month. Join us to #RaceforALS!

Proceeds from the event equip, encourage, and empower those battling ALS and their families. The Brigance Brigade Foundation is one of the only organizations providing support to people battling the disease right now. Your registration and donations turn into services, equipment and guidance that provide hope and help to people in the fight of their lives, the fight for their lives.
