Summer 2019
Working for a Cure
It's summer and the warm weather is here ... that means The Angel Fund events continue!

We are grateful to all who come out to support our events (see upcoming events below) and to those who have donated and/or volunteered. With your help, we have been able to raise millions of dollars for ALS research.

Your generous donations and support have enabled us to complete our pledge and provide Dr. Robert Brown and his research team with $1.2 million in 2018/2019 - with more funding on the way.

We are proud to say that of the funds expended, The Angel Fund gives 92% to research.

We are reminded of what we have accomplished together as members of The Angel Fund family, which has grown from a single "seed of hope" into thousands of emissaries like you who carry The Angel Fund torch every day.

We still have a way to go and need your support to keep us moving forward with clinical trials. The research is promising and we will continue until treatment and a cure is found.

Together, we will make hope a reality!
