About the event

Hi D-Rex Defenders friends and family,

This will be our third-year fundraising for brain cancer with Angels Among Us (AAU) Angels Among Us in honor and memory of our beloved Derek, who passed away on April 17, 2019, from glioblastoma.

AAU has always taken place in April each year but due to COVID over the past two years, Angels Among Us 5k Run and Walk for Hope took place virtually in October. We are thrilled AAU will be back in full swing on Duke Campus on April 30, 2022. We raised over $5k last year and want to raise our goal to $10,000 this year; we are getting close!

Simply cut and paste the link into your browser or click on it directly. There, you can register for the 5k Run, the Walk for Hope and/or to donate to the D-Rex Defenders Team. Please share on your social media platforms too.Please visit our D-Rex Defenders team page at http://dccc.convio.net/goto/DRex

These critical funds that are raised will support cutting-edge research being done at The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke Hospital in Durham, where Derek spent months seeking treatment. Your gift will be used for brain tumor research and education, which is critical in our fight. Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer related deaths in children (yes children!) and now the leading cause of cancer related deaths in men, ages 20-39. The median survival rate for people diagnosed with glioblastoma is 8 months. THIS MUST CHANGE!

We thank you so much! Your donation will make a difference in our fight for a cure. We hope to see you out there if you can make it!

Much Love,

Derek's family
