Angels Among Us is a celebration of life, strength, courage and commitment. It has become a national event, with participants and volunteers coming from all across the country to help make a difference. The first event in 1994 raised $27,000. The 2017 event raised more than $2.1 million—bringing the total to over $22 million to support brain tumor research at The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center.
It is the most important source of unrestricted funds for brain tumor research at the center. Funds raised are quickly delivered where they are needed most in the fight against brain cancer. Your gift will be used for brain tumor research and education, and may be endowed to provide ongoing support.
