HONORARY CHAIR 2011- O.J. BRIGANCE OF BALTIMORE RAVENS!!


As a Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl Champion, O.J. Brigance used his personal strength and stamina to crush the most formidable opponents. Then in 2007, his perspective changed. As an ALS patient, O.J. Brigance is living his toughest challenge.... O.J. Brigance has refused to succumb to ALS.


Instead, he has decided to fight and is expecting to win the battle. Brigance has often been thought of as the toughest man on the Ravens team. Despite the fact that he is in a motorized wheelchair and can no longer move or speak, he still inspires people all around him. He embodies the meaning of true strength, faith, and courage.


The Super Bowl XXXV Champion has decided to partner with the Packard Center for ALS Research by serving as an ALS Ambassador and also as the honorary chair for the Fiesta 5K. He has also created his own foundation, the Brigance Brigade, which helps ensure future patients and their families face a less daunting battle.
