The Alpha Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma professional chemistry fraternity, with the help of the Michigan Running Foundation, is hosting the Run Your ALS Off 5k to raise funds to donate to the ALS Association of Michigan. The ALS Association works to provide care and treatment research for patients living with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. By participating in the Run Your ALS Off 5k, you are bringing hope to families all throughout the United States. Each runner will receive a race bib with a disposable race chip. The times for each runner will be recorded for an awards ceremony to follow. Runners who sign up will also receive a Run Your ALS Off 5k t-shirt. ALS Association wristbands may be purchased separately for $1.
