As you may have heard, The Hope Express released a message late last week, stating that the annual run has come to a close after 10 years. They will not be running The Hope Express in 2017. While it may come as a surprise to the greater THON community, we understand that this event is a huge effort and takes a toll on the organizational leadership year after year.
We sincerely appreciate everything that Hank, Connie and the Angus family have done for THON, DMAIG, and Four Diamonds over the last 10 years. The Hope Express proved to be a great way for alumni to give back to THON, much like many other independent alumni events across the country. Even though this event has come to an end, it is part of DMAIG’s mission to continue to find ways for alumni to feel connected to the cause.
As it becomes available to us, we will release any pertinent information regarding The Hope Express and any other alternative initiatives driven by DMAIG. Further questions about The Hope Express can be directed to Hank and Connie Angus via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
