ALS Bites!

We here at the Brigance Brigade Foundation know that ALS really bites! Throughout the month of May, in honor of ALS Awareness Month and all those people currently battling the disease, 10 restaurants in the Baltimore area will be supporting our mission through our ALS Bites campaign!

From May 1 – 31, participating restaurants will be offering a special Brigance Brigade Foundation themed menu or drink item. At the end of ALS Awareness Month, proceeds from those items will be donated back to the Foundation so that we may continue to equip, encourage and empower people living with ALS.

Check out our full list of participating restaurants here.

#RaceforALS Across America:

May – October | Various Locations Across the Country

Inspired by O.J. Brigance’s unwavering determination, Board Member Todd Jennings is using his physical capabilities to bring awareness to ALS in a unique way – by participating in 11 triathlon events across the country! Todd is doing this in an effort to raise $20,000 for the Brigance Brigade Foundation.

Follow his journey, join his team – #RaceforALS. Learn more here.

Donate in Honor of ALS Awareness Month:


While we would love for all of our supporters to participate in all of our ALS Awareness Month events we know that is not possible. If you would like to support people battling ALS but cannot physically be present at one of our special events this month, please consider making a donation in honor of ALS Awareness Month. Your support will provide hope and help for people with ALS and their families!
