The Brigance Brigade Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to equip,
encourage, and empower people living with ALS, created by former NFL player O.J. Brigance and his wife Chanda, today
announced that registration is now open for the 6th annual 5.7K Championship Race & 1.57 Mile Family Run/Walk.
The April 28th event will serve as the foundation’s kick-off to ALS Awareness Month (May) and proceeds will further the
Foundation’s work of providing access to needed equipment, resource guidance and financial support services to
families battling ALS. The 2019 event will once again feature USATF-certified courses in distances that pay homage to
Founder O.J Brigance’s jersey number, #57 (5.7K, 1.57 mile family run/walk) and a Kids’ Fun Run.
