Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Presents

No Ordinary Campaign

Join the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative for a special screening of a feature documentary about action born from hope.


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.
