Event Description

Dave’s Run for ALS is an event for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The event is named for the late David Filer who was an avid runner, active SAR member, and local business owner. David was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, in the summer of 2000. Currently there is no cure for this fatal disease. A portion of the proceeds from the event will go specifically for ALS research, via the Jim Himelic foundation. Race distances are 10K, 5K and FitKidz and Family 1 Mile Run/Walk. Or, you can choose DAVE’s DOUBLE (DD) and run both the 5K and 10K on the same day! Awards for 10K & 5K in 5 year age groups. Only the 5K is a part of The Running Shop SAR Grand Prix.
