Your participation is making a difference!
The 2016 Todd Nagel Memorial Research Grant was presented in Washington D.C. with proceeds from the 2015 event.
Since Todd passed away ten years ago from melanoma, we have supported the Skin Cancer Foundation with donations raised at the Todd Nagel Memorial Golf Outing. This annual event has raised a cumulative total of $150,000 over the past 9 years through the golf event, silent auction and the direct donation drive. Because of our consistent support of the Skin Cancer Foundation through hard work and a passion to find a cure for melanoma, the foundation continues to support our work with research grants in Todd's name. The support of family, friends, and colleagues at Johnson & Johnson has made this event a success each year.
