Race 4 Research 5K & Walk
The Race 4 Research brings attention to the critical role of science in bringing us closer to a cure for ALS
and celebrates the progress made by those extremely smart and talented people who lead the charge. We weren't
going to call them nerds, but now that you say that…
Let's celebrate the revenge of the nerds! Let your geek flag fly! Nerdy costumes are encouraged and
awards will be given to the best ones!
Why We Run, Walk & Roll
All proceeds benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute. the first and largest nonprofit biotech
focused 100 percent on ALS research. Founded in 1999, the Institute brings together 30 industry-trained
scientists with experience discovering drugs and bringing them to market. Led by people living with the disease
and their families, we understand the urgent need to slow and stop this terrible disease. For more information
