The TANGO2 Research Foundation recently wrapped up our third Shine a Light on TANGO2 fundraising campaign. This annual fundraising event supports The T2RF’s mission of funding TANGO2 Deficiency Disorder (TDD) research.

From February to June participants in the Shine a Light on TANGO2 campaign formed amazing fundraising teams and hosted creative fundraisers within their own communities, as well as accept donations online. This year, we set a goal to raise $100,000 (USD). We are delighted to share that we exceeded this goal! Over $109,000 (USD) was raised. A big thanks to all of our amazing fundraisers and donors.

A special congratulations to our top 5 individual fundraisers and teams;

Individuals: Kara Cameron, Matt Dort, Veronica Jones, Mike Morris, and Kelley Hernandez

Teams: Team Ryan, Team Brian, The Dorts’ Team, Team Fryar Brothers, and Cole’s Cousins

Funds raised will support T2RF Cycle 3 Research Grantees. These scientists will be conducting groundbreaking TANGO2 related research.

  • Dr. Vandana Gupta of Brigham and Women’s Hospital
  • Drs. Lilei Zhang and Aleksandar Bajic of Baylor College of Medicine

Again, a huge thank you to all of the participants in this year’s Shine a Light on TANGO2 Campaign in helping us to exceed our fundraising goal.

We look forward to seeing you again next year and funding more TDD research in the future!
