Join the Brigance Brigade Foundation on Sunday, April 30th, 2017 at 9 am for the 4th annual BBF 5.7K Championship Event at Baltimore’s beautiful Canton Waterfront Park (3001 Boston St, Baltimore, MD 21224).
In 2017, we #RaceforALS to honor former Baltimore Raven O.J. Brigance’s 10 year anniversary of his ALS diagnosis; a decade of embodying that All Things Are Possible Fighting ALS.
In solidarity with his tremendous strength and service, we will race, run, walk, stroll, roll, and raise funds for ALS families, just in time to kick off the month of May -- ALS Awareness Month. Join us!
In honor of O.J. Brigance's jersey number (#57), the 5.7k Championship Event features:
- Timed 5.7k run/walk ($40 pre-registration, $45 April 29-30th)
- 1.57 mile run/walk ($35 pre-registration, $40 April 29-30th)
- Kids' fun run/walk ($10 - all dates)
- Virtual Racer - $40
- Professional timing services provided by Blue Cheetah Sports Timing and Event Management, LLC
Proceeds equip, encourage, and empower those battling ALS and their families.
In 2016, participants from 14 states registered for the 5.7k Championship Event! This year, we’ve set a goal to increase participation and show ALS families they are not battling alone.
THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE! NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.
For those who want to participate without traveling to Baltimore, or who might not be able to race that day, we offer a BRAND NEW virtual race option in 2017:
- Sign up as a Virtual Racer with your family and friends
- Build your team page to collect donations
- Race your own 5.7k (3.54 miles) or 1.57 miles wherever you are – or -- sit back, prop up your feet, and feel awesome that you equipped, encouraged, and empowered ALS families!
- Engage with the Brigance Brigade Foundation on social media, share your training stories (successes and failures welcome!) and your times using hashtag #RaceforALS
- We will send you a race swag package so you can participate in style

ABOUT THE BRIGANCE BRIGADE FOUNDATION
The foundation was founded by former Baltimore Raven, O.J. Brigance and his wife, Chanda. O.J. Brigance is currently the Director of Player Engagement for the Baltimore Ravens and was a key player for the Ravens during the Super Bowl XXXV Winning Season of 2000.
He was diagnosed with ALS in 2007, and this year we will honor his decade of dedication to the ALS community. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Brigance Brigade Foundation which equips, encourages and empowers people living with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). The Brigance Brigade Foundation improves the quality of life for ALS patients and their families by providing access to much-needed equipment, support services, and resource guidance.
