Come join the hundreds of teams who participate each year in the Angels Among Us 5K & Walk of HOPE. Create (or reactivate) a team and encourage your family and friends to promote the work at the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center and to raise critical funds for brain tumor research.


New Team Captain Information

As a team captain, your job is to motivate your family, friends, and colleagues to join your team and raise funds for the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center.

We created a step-by-step team captain guide that contains useful information about how to manage your team and learn more about Angels Among Us. If you need additional assistance, our Angels Among Us staff is here to support you throughout the entire process. Here are a few important steps not to forget:

Pick a Team Name and have fun naming your team. Check the team list to make sure you don’t duplicate an existing team name.

Register Your Team using the yellow "Register" button above and follow the instructions. Add a story and photos to the Team page to share why this is important to you.

Recruit family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to join your team.

Whether your team is here in person or here in spirit, we welcome you to our growing family of supporters.

In addition to creating a team, there are a few other ways to participate in the event.

The Wall of Honor & Remembrance

A sentimental tribute will be set up for you to celebrate survivors or the life of your loved one. You may post pictures, poems, stories—whatever you would like to place on the wall to celebrate their life. Please remember to take your precious mementos with you when you leave the event.


Team T-Shirt ContestFishing for a Cure T-shirt

Many teams design a special T-shirt for their members to wear on event day. Some shirts are sentimental and others are designed with a team name or phrase in unique ways. Since this is a fun idea, and not required, event awards are given to the top five creative team T-shirts to thank them for their extra effort. If you create a special T-shirt we’d love to see it! Send a front and back picture of your shirt to Angels Among Us.
