Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Presents
No Ordinary Campaign
5:00 - 9:30 pm
At 37, Brian Wallach was diagnosed with ALS—on the same day he and his wife Sandra brought their youngest daughter home from the hospital. A broken system offered no hope for a cure or even a drug that could meaningfully extend Brian’s life. No Ordinary Campaign follows Brian and Sandra’s fight to remake a healthcare system for their own future – and for the millions of other patients living with rare and neurodegenerative diseases.
The film will be preceded by the premiere of a 12-minute short feature film highlighting the stories of some of CZI’s Rare As One grantees who are leading groundbreaking research to find treatments and cures for rare diseases.
Please note: Masks are required for audience members.
Guest check-in opens at the Presidio Theatre Performing Arts Center (99 Moraga Avenue, San Francisco 94129).
(Early arrival is encouraged. Check-in begins at 4:30.)
Panel discussion with I AM ALS co-founders Brian Wallach and Sandra Abrevaya, CZI’s Head of Science Steve Quake, fellow patient-led research advocates Kim Nye and Luke Rosen – moderated by CZI’s VP of Science and Society, Tania Simoncelli.
