Proceeds from T-Shirt Sales to Benefit ALS Patients and Their Families

Baltimore, Md. – The Brigance Brigade Foundation, created by former NFL player O.J. Brigance and his wife Chanda, announced the release of a new Brigance Brigade Foundation t-shirt to celebrate the Baltimore Ravens playing in Super Bowl XLVII. Proceeds from the t-shirts will benefit the Brigance Brigade Foundation, which raises funds to improve the quality of life for ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) patients and their families by providing needed equipment, resource guidance and support services.

The Brigance Brigade Foundation’s Super Bowl t-shirt will be sold in various locations around Baltimore, including DJ Liquidators, Ravens Zone, Poor Boys, Ravens Fever (Rosedale location), the Sports Legends Museum, Sports Page, Sports Shop, and 17 Mars Super Market locations. The shirts are being printed by Maryland Screen Printers.

O.J. Brigance, who is living with ALS, currently works as Senior Advisor to Player Development for the Baltimore Ravens, and will travel to New Orleans to support his team this weekend as they take on the San Francisco 49ers. Brigance wore number 57 when the Ravens last went to the Super Bowl in 2000. He was responsible for the first tackle of the game and continues to lead his team with the same fight and determination today.

About the Brigance Brigade:
O.J. Brigance is one of the few professional football players to win both a Canadian Football League and National Football League championship, and the only one to do it in the same city, Baltimore, MD.

Following his diagnosis with ALS, O.J. and his wife Chanda created the Brigance Brigade Foundation to equip, encourage and empower people living with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis); we strive to improve the quality of life for them and their families by providing needed equipment, resource guidance and support services, in addition to funding various research initiatives.
