Thank you for supporting Diamond Awards! 

With help from our generous supporters, our annual Diamond Awards event raised over $375,000! We couldn't have asked for a more memorable night celebrating the Minnesota Twins and the University of Minnesota.

Please check back for the official date for Diamond Awards in January of 2022!

Proceeds from Diamond Awards fund innovative research and patient care for brain, nerve, and muscle disorders at the University of Minnesota and M Health Fairview hospitals and clinics. Your support helps give families who are affected by neurological disease hope that someday soon we will find a cure. To learn more about the important cause behind this event, please watch this video about the history of Twins legend Bob Allison and his battle with Ataxia.



Because of you, our generous supporters and sponsors, the University of Minnesota and M Health Fairview experts are improving the lives of people confronting brain, nerve, and muscle disorders.

On behalf of the University of Minnesota community, thank you!
