The event which will take place in the Canton section of Baltimore, Maryland with proceeds from the event going towards furthering the mission of the Brigance Brigade Foundation, whose goal it is to equip, encourage and empower people living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

“Chanda and I are excited to host the first-ever Brigance Brigade Foundation 5.7K Run,” said O.J. Brigance, Co-Founder of the Brigance Brigade Foundation. “Our goal is create a fun, family friendly event for our community to enjoy while supporting a good cause and raising awareness for a terrible disease affecting people across the country. The city of Baltimore has always been extremely supportive, and we hope to see the community come out in full force to support our mission of helping to improve the lives of those living with ALS.”

The 5.7K event will also feature something for the kids in attendance as well. A Kid’s Fun Run will be held within the Celebration Village of the event along with a fun zone as well.

The event promises to be a fun-filled day for everyone and a great chance to give back to such a wonderful cause.
