2014 FIESTA 5k/15k Challenge for ALS

EVENT DATE: May 03, 2014

Cure for ALS

THE STORY:

All fundraising and donation proceeds will benefit the ALS Center at Emory University.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) can strike anyone; in fact it happens to 15 people each day in the U.S. The average life expectancy is only 2-5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS slowly takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow, and ultimately breathe. There is no cure for ALS so there are no survivors to tell their stories.

For the 8th year the Emory ALS Center is the beneficiary of 100% of the proceeds from the FIESTA 5k/15k Challenge. The Emory ALS Center is one of the largest clinical centers for ALS in the United States. The Center provides true multidisciplinary care for patients and families with ALS and related disorders. Emory’s physician-scientists continue to perform groundbreaking research, including developing surgical methods for delivery of therapeutics to the spinal cord. They search tirelessly for a cure for this devastating disease, focusing on basic mechanisms of motor neuron degeneration, genetics of ALS, and new experimental treatments.

As the name suggests, the FIESTA 15k/5k Challenge is not your ordinary race. With two distances, we draw causal runners and walkers for the 5k and endurance runners for the 15k.

The FIESTA 15k/5k Challenge brings entire families out for a morning of health & fitness, awareness for ALS, community outreach, and a celebration of life. Since 2007 the race has raised nearly $150,000 for the Emory ALS Center.

Thank you for your generous support and for joining us in Celebrating Life….Imagining a Cure.
