Over the past two years, The Angel Fund has donated more than $1 million to the research efforts of Dr. Robert H Brown, Jr. and his team at the Day lab at UMass Medical Center. At a recent visit to UMass Medical, The Angel Fund  participated in a check presentation ceremony to show the most recent donations. 
With The Angel Fund's low overhead costs and the support we receive from our Angel Fund family, we are able to provide more funding for research.
Help us turn hope into reality!

Walk of Hope for ALS
September 8th
  
The 11th Annual Walk of Hope for ALS begins and ends on Wakefield's lower Common, on the shores of beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. The 3.5-mile level route runs parallel to the lake, providing a picturesque walk for walkers of all ages and abilities.
Take part in the walk, raise money through pledges and donations, and participate in activities on the Common! Refreshments will be available for all walkers at the conclusion of the walk.
This family-friendly event raises funds that directly benefit ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) research at the Cecil B. Day Neuromuscular Lab at the UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
We encourage you to join in this celebration of hope by walking, and raising money, for those who are living with ALS, or in memory of those who are no longer with us.
