The Brigance Brigade – consisting of Ravens players, coaches and front office personnel – will roll through the streets of Baltimore this Saturday morning as part of the 4th Annual Fiesta 5K.

The Fiesta 5K, which starts at M&T Bank Stadium, is the signature event for the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins.

The Ravens will be supporting honorary chair and Ravens Director of Player Development O.J. Brigance, who has fought the disease, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, since 2007.

Brigance’s foundation, Brigance Brigade, helps future patients and their families face a less daunting battle. If you can’t run, you can still support Brigance and the Fiesta 5K by making an online donation.

Registration is still open online and will begin on-site at 6:30 a.m. The race begins at 8 a.m.
