Virtual Fiesta 5K raises over $40,000 for ALS Research!

The Packard Center's 14th annual event a success, despite the challenges.

The 14th Annual (and first-ever) Virtual Fiesta 5K raised over $43,000 for ALS Research this spring. While runners were not able to gather in person due to COVID-19 restrictions, participants showed their flexibility, creativity and enthusiasm to help keep the spirit of the annual event alive, even during challenging times. Teams safely gathered, Zoomed, ran, walked and exercised in support of science. 

All proceeds directly benefited the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research, and will be used to unlock answers and find effective therapies to end ALS for future generations. 

Save the date for the 15th Annual Fiesta 5K on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

The Fiesta 5K website will remain open until September for those that still wish to make a gift.  To donate:
