Angels Among Us begins with a 5K run through the Duke campus, followed by a Walk of HOPE around the medical center campus and the Duke Gardens. A family-friendly event, Angels offers a silent auction, entertainment, and fun activities for children (including a free prize at the children's prize tent). We also have free soft drinks, great food vendors and much more.

Walk of HOPE

The Walk of Hope  begins at the main stage and is led first by our pediatric survivors followed by our adult survivors. The first leg goes by the Duke Cancer Center (Medicine Circle), then back towards the event on Flowers Drive. The second leg of the walk takes you through the Duke Gardens.

Approximate length is 1.5 miles but because the route loops back to the event, participants can stop earlier if the walk becomes too tiring. The walk is wheelchair accessible but the Duke Gardens has gravel pathways.

This is the finale at our event but food trucks will be staying after the walk.
