We are excited to announce that the 2015 Angels Among Us website will be MOBILE accessible this year!!! The website is in production and should be ready for our Angel teams to register for the 2015 event by the first of December.
For now, we are keeping the 2014 Angels website open for donations only. All donations earmarked for 2015 will be transferred to your teams when the 2015 website is open.
We're sorry for the inconvenience of a late registration opening, however the advantages of having your teams be available by cell phone and other mobile devices is tremendous!!!

Each year I like to visit our Angels’ team pages to see how the teams get their names; this is the story behind the team “Groovy Red Threads”
This truly is “Groovy!”
"Red Thread" is an ancient Chinese belief:
According to this myth, the gods tie a red cord around the ankles of those that are to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. The people connected by the red thread are destined to know each other regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.
These threads weave the fabric of our lives, when viewed from one side of the fabric seem chaotic, but from the other side show a beautiful pattern of life. We may not understand this pattern until sometime later in our lives, but it creates a powerful trust that we are right were we need to be at any given moment.
"Groovy" because all the special people who have given care and support to those with this disease are amazing. They are also woven into this fabric and have shared their unconditional support and love to their loved ones and to me.
We all walk this journey to heal and share our stories together and that's pretty groovy!
