Craig's Story...

The Craig Poythress Foundation was founded by Terry and Carol Poythress in loving memory of their son Craig, who was diagnosed in October, 2010 with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. In honor of his memory, The Craig Poythress Foundation will host fundraising events each year so that we may continue our mission of providing help to find a cure for this deadly disease. Events include annual golf tournaments, a 5K run at Duke for Angels Among Us, and Silent Auction events. Thank you for helping us make a difference!
