Brigance Brigade - Now an ALL VIRTUAL EVENT! -

In order to prioritize the safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, BBF has made our 2020 fundraising events virtual, including the Brigance Brigade Championship Race, which was canceled by the City of Baltimore.

All current registrations will be honored and we will automatically change your registration to a "virtual racer" and mail out your race materials.  Please see RACE INFO for more information about submitting your virtual race times. 

Celebration of Champions: a virtual event benefiting our mission to equip, encourage, and empower people living with ALS, will begin with our virtual run on August 23, and conclude with our Virtual Gala on September 25. 

If you signed up early, while we were still hoping to have a "Live" race, you selected a shirt size.  Due to the financial impact of the pandemic we are unable to offer shirts and have substituted a branded Bondiband headband.  We apologize for any inconvenience and please feel free to reach out to us with any questions.

During this unprecedented time, we are asking for your help!

Like many small businesses, our nonprofit is at risk because of COVID19. This event is our primary fundraiser each year and the community's participation is critical to ensure we can continue to equip, encourage, and empower people living with ALS. 
 
We are deeply appreciative of our community and plan to keep everyone informed as any further decisions are made. 
Stay safe - thank you for your support!

Here Are Your Options:

As a virtual racer, you  can run your distance and submit your finish time any days between August 23 and September 24. 

Results may be submitted through the RaceJoy app, or by sending a photo of your sports watch, running app or treadmill screen showing your distance and time. 

Please see "RACE INFO" for further details

Whether you run on a treadmill, jog around your neighborhood or walk in your favorite park, we ask you to walk or run in honor of the lives and legacies of all those who have been impacted by ALS any time during August 23 - September 24, 2020 and submit your timed results to us.

In 2020, BBF:

  • Continued to provide financial grants to People living with ALS (PALS) to access in-home care, home accessibility, and equipment, not covered by insurance
  • Promoted a partnership with the National Institute of Health ALS Research Lab to study the genetic basis of ALS, particularly amongst African American PALS who have been historically underrepresented in ALS research 
    Launched a new program under Chanda’s Caregiver Corner – the Caregiver Club, a virtual meetup of caregivers with the goal of building community and supporting the self-care practice of caregivers
    Joined 20+ ALS organizations around the country in the Every Community project, to gather information about the faces of ALS in every Congressional district to power advocacy work for those fighting ALS everyday
