In its 23-year history, Angels Among Us, a 5K and family fun run, has raised more than $20 million to support the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center. Last year Angels Among Us raised $1.8 million. The 24th Annual Angels Among Us is expected to raise $2 million.
Participants are encouraged to form teams in honor of loved ones and raise funds. Participants are also invited to bring memoirs, such as photos, poems and stories, to display on the Wall of Honor.
The 24th Annual Angels Among Us will take place Saturday, April 29, on the Duke Medical Center Campus in Durham, North Carolina. The certified 5K run begins at 8 a.m. Survivor recognition takes place at 10:30 a.m. and the 3K Walk starts at 10:45 a.m. Because of the size of the event, dogs are not allowed. There is a $30 pre-registration fee for the 5K run and the 3K walk. Children 12 and younger participate in the walk for free. Event-day registration is $35.
