We love animals just as much as you do! However, due to safety and liability reasons, pets are unfortunately not allowed at Pancreatic Cancer Action Network events. Service animals are, of course, welcome.

Strollers and wheelchairs are absolutely welcome at PurpleStride! Please keep in mind, however, that there is a small section of gravel along the route.

Wall of Honor

Our PurpleLight on May 18 was a beautiful event hosted to honor survivors, inspire those that are battling the disease, and remember loved ones lost to pancreatic cancer.

At PurpleLight we featured the Wall of Honor, pictured below. It is a space to honor someone who has died from pancreatic cancer with a picture and a short story about them. We also have a survivor wall that honors patients faced with this disease.

If you have any questions on how you can write your tribute, please contact: Susan Brown, sbrown@pancanvolunteer.org
