-BEARD & BEANS
Come join the Beard vs Beans brothers, Miguel and Matt as they team up with the Alzheimer’s Association to bring you this OFFICIAL FIESTA EVENT, Run To Remember. This is the 8th annual Run to Remember which will take place at Comanche Park this year. Run to Remember will be a chip timed 5k/10k race and we are adding in a .5k for those who choose not to run long distance, great for the kids and was added at the request of Matt with Team Beard (for him). All registrants will receive a shirt and finishers medal. Run to Remember will be will take place on the last day of Fiesta, so stick around for our post-race Fiesta.
This is the first year Beard vs Beans will be hosting Run to Remember, and we have 3 goals for this race
1. Bring our families, friends, caregivers and community together to help ENDALZ together.
2. We want to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for your mind and body, while bringing awareness to Alzheimer’s and related dementias.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. All funds raised will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association, San Antonio & South Texas Chapter. 5.7 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s
Beard vs Beans was founded on Brotherly Rivalry! Miguel (Beans) and Matt (Beard) raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association by hosting multiple events throughout the year with a Main Event to conclude their competitive fundraising. Year 1 ended with a just under $4k raised and Matt shaving his beloved beard. Year 2 ended with over $8k raised under 2 campaigns, The Longest Day and The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and again Matt suffered a loss getting a tattoo forever embodying Miguel’s face and the hashtag #ENDALZ. Yes, we are serious about what we do!
Fiesta is an annual festival held in April in San Antonio and is the city’s signature event since the late 19th century. The festival began as a single event to honor the memory of the Battle of the Alamo and San Jacinto. In 2019 we will close out Fiesta with Run to Remember!
