Hello Family and Friends!
Cristie’s Crusaders is back for 2023!
We are now focusing our efforts on our annual fundraising event - Angels Among Us! This 5K and walk through the beautiful Duke Gardens is scheduled for Saturday, April 22 at the Duke Cancer Center. This event supports research and treatments for brain cancer patients.
Since the creation of Cristie's Crusaders in 2018, we have far surpassed our team goal each year. This year our goal is $15,000! Your support has always meant so much and we really need your help to make it happen again in 2023!!!
In May, I will be celebrating 6 years since my brain cancer diagnosis. As you can imagine, this event means the absolute world to me. Every single day, I thank God for allowing me to be here with all of you. But on this day, I physically get to celebrate my life with my family, friends, other survivors, caregivers, and of course all of my heros at the Brain Tumor Center at Duke. This day is a true inspiration and the push I need to continue fighting. I'm not sure if anyone can truly understand the struggles each and every day. I am so very grateful and thankful for the strength and courage God gives me to fight this miserable disease. I simply couldn't do this without all of your support, love, hugs, encouragement and of course -prayers!
Please be sure to log in and sign up to walk or run (or both). For those who cannot attend, you can donate directly to our team - 100% of funds raised will go directly towards the research and development of brain cancer treatments for patients of all ages. This disease does not discriminate - just follow the link at the bottom of the page to contribute your tax deductible donation to a very good cause. We continue to see an increase in the number of long term survivors each year we participate in the Angels event. And it wouldn't be possible without your support.
Please be sure to log in and sign up to walk or run (or both) on April 22, 2023.
