18th Annual Diamond Awards

An annual event benefiting University of Minnesota Medical School and M Health Fairview's innovative research and patient care for those suffering with ataxia, ALS, MD, MS, and Parkinson's disease


Thank you for supporting the 18th Annual Diamond Awards! If this were the World Series of fundraisers, we would be the champions. Thanks to your help, together we raised more than $295,000 for families and individuals facing neurological disorders.

If you missed the event or want an encore, watch the recording now.

Thank you to the MVPs of this event - Bally Sports North, the Minnesota Twins, Baseball Writers Association of America, Committee Co-Chairs Jennifer Crowder and Debra Allison, and the entire event committee. We also want to give special recognition to all of our sponsors who provided such amazing support for this event. Also, we truly appreciate Kevin and Tessa Geraghty, Joe Vannelli, and Dana Rose for sharing their story of strength and hope. This is just one of the many stories that propels the University of Minnesota to fight for treatment and research for neurological disorders. Without your support, none of this would be possible. Once again, THANK YOU!

Through the ongoing generosity and hard work of many, many individuals, Diamond Awards has raised over $4 million in support of families who are affected by neurological diseases with the hope that someday soon we will find a cure. Working together and sharing our skills, compassion, dedication, and love in support of our neighbors here in the Twin Cities, our state, our region, and our world is what our community is all about. This year, more than ever, we are focusing on our community and the light this event brings to it. We look forward to working and celebrating with you!

Because of you, our generous supporters and sponsors, the University of Minnesota Medical School and M Health Fairview’s researchers and doctors are improving the lives of people with neurological disorders.
