Dave’s Run for ALS at Curtis Park

March 24, 2019 @ 6:50 am - 10:00 am


The 19th annual Dave’s Run for ALS is an event for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. The event honors 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.

Dave’s Run for ALS takes place in Curtis Park near River and La Cholla. The park is on Curtis road just west of the ‘Sporting Chance’ building.
