Why Sponsor the Fiesta 5k Challenge?

As a sponsor of the Fiesta 5k Challenge, you will join us in making an impact on stopping this disease. 100% of the funds raised supports groundbreaking research at Emory toward a cure or effective treatment for ALS. Sponsors will be featured on the website and social media and are invited to set up on race day to interact with participants and spectators.

Since 2007, Team Duffy/Cure for ALS has hosted the event that brings entire families out to participate in this well-organized race on the beautiful Big Creek Greenway in Cumming, GA. The Fiesta 5k Challenge has raised over $475,000 for the Emory ALS Center. ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a neuromuscular disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. It takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow and ultimately breathe. The Emory ALS Center is part of the Emory Brain Health Center, led by Dr. Jonathan Glass, is one of the largest clinical centers for ALS in the United States. Their team approach to ALS care and research bridges multiple disciplines and departments, all sharing the same goal of a world without ALS.
