Join us for the 26th annual Angels Among Us 5K and Walk of HOPE

Angels Among Us is a day of celebration of life, strength, courage and commitment.  Your gift will be used for brain tumor research and education, and may be endowed to provide ongoing support of the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center. Over 4,000 participants come together to celebrate HOPE in the fight against brain cancer.

Festivities include 5K run, silent auction, kid’s zone, food, characters, entertainment and Walk of Hope.

5K Run…making strides to cure brain cancer

The Angels Among Us 5K run is a competitive USATF certified course. Enjoy rolling hills as you run through the beautiful Duke campus, by the Duke Chapel, and alongside the Nasher Museum. It begins and ends at the main event on Flowers Drive and is guided by the Duke and Durham police.

Over 2,500 runners crossed the finish line last year, including 50 brain cancer survivors. Now, that’s inspiration!

This year, Precision Race will be orchestrating the run and providing real time finish times available on their kiosks or by mobile app.
