2020 Fiesta 5K for ALS Research

May 4, 2020

$860.00 Raised So Far!

About the Race

Since its inception in 2007, the Fiesta 5K has raised more than $3.4 million for ALS research. Participants can run/walk as part of a team or on their own. With a scenic course through Harbor East, the Fiesta 5K has become the can't-miss event in Baltimore the first Saturday every May. The goal of the race is simple - we want to make people more aware of ALS and raise funds to support our efforts toward a cure.
