Angels Among Us 2021-2022

D-Rex Defenders

Thanks for visiting our page!  We have formed the D-Rex Defenders for our second year in honor of our beloved Derek, who passed away in April of 2019 due to brain cancer - - - but not after fighting fearlessly for his life, like the warrior he was. 

Due to COVID, the 2021 Angels Among Us 5k Walk/Run will take place virtually between September 2nd - October 2nd, 2021.  The 5k on Duke Campus will be held in-person on October 2nd.  We raised over $5k last year and want to raise our goal to $10,000 this year!  There's still time to participate and donate!  For more information, please visit our team page at  Simply cut and paste, enter this link into your browser, or click on it directly. 


These critical funds that are raised will support cutting-edge research being done here at The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke Hospital, which is where Derek spent months seeking treatment. Your gift will be used for brain tumor research and education, which is so monumental.

We thank you so much for touching Derek's life and appreciate all you have done! :)
