Rice University, in collaboration with the Rice University Athletic Department and “R” Association, will host two very special events in honor of alumnus and Rice University Hall of Fame Football Player, O.J. Brigance. These events, taking place on Saturday, May 20, 2017, will not only celebrate ALS Awareness Month (May), but also O.J. Brigance’s decade of strength, spent fighting the disease for himself and ALS families across the country. The first event of the day, the Celebration of Courage 1.57 Mile Championship Walk (all ages welcome), will begin at 9:00am and will be held at Rice Stadium. For a $30 registration fee, attendees can enjoy music by DJ Paki Nelson (Rice Alum DJ), snacks and water, and games in the Kids’ Fun Zone as they honor O.J. Brigance with fun and fitness! Later that evening, at 6:00pm, the University will host guests at the Patterson Center for the Celebration of Courage Party (adults age 21+). Tickets, which can be purchased for $75, provide access to delicious food and beverages, entertainment, a silent auction, and a program which includes remarks from O.J. Brigance and recognition of all O.J. Brigance Courage Award winners from the last several years. Anyone interested in attending both events can register for a flat fee of $100. Registration Deadline: Wednesday, May 17, 2017 11:55 p.m.
