Angels Among Us 2021-2022

D-Rex Defenders

Thanks for visiting our D-Rex Defenders page!  This will be our third year in honor and memory 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. 

Angels Among Us has always taken place in April each year. Due to COVID, the last two years the 5k run and walk for Hope have been virtual and we are now running 2021 and 2022 together for one big in person event on April 30th, 2022 on Duke Campus. Help us reach our goal of $10,000, we are over half way there!! Cut and paste our team link in your social media to share with your circles to help us reach our goal. 

 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. Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer related deaths in children (yes children!) and now the leading cause of cancer related deaths in males, ages 20-39. THIS MUST CHANGE! 

Thank you so much, your donation will make a difference in our fight for a cure. We hope to see you there! 

Much Love,

Derek's family
