Event Description:

Join Mix 106.5 on May 5, 2018 at Power Plant Live for the 12th Annual Fiesta 5K to benefit the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins.  The Packard Center believes that the hope is in the science when it comes to unlocking the mysteries of the disease ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  ALS is a progressive neuromuscular illness that causes a gradual weakening of motor nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.Muscles become increasingly weakened, eventually causing paralysis and death. There is no cure.  Every 90 seconds, someone in the US is diagnosed with ALS.  The Packard Center is the only international research organization dedicated solely to finding the causes, treatments, and an eventual cure for the disease.

The Fiesta 5K brings together thousands of supporters to raise money for the Packard Center’s research programs.  You can start your own team or simply sign up to run/walk. It’s easy, visit www.fiesta5k.com to sign up today.  To date, the Fiesta 5K raised over $3 million for ALS Research and we want this one to be the biggest and best yet.  Support the 12th Annual Fiesta 5K for ALS Research and help make a difference in the lives of those who suffer with ALS.Sign up today.
