PurpleStride is an incredible community celebration and centerpiece for the PanCAN family.

As an organization focused on supporting pancreatic cancer patients and their extended community, the health and safety of this vulnerable population, as well as that of our supporters, volunteers and staff, must be our top priority.

Therefore, in the interest of continuing your spirited PurpleStride celebration and keeping you safe, we invite you to join us for our first-ever Virtual PurpleStride Delaware on June 6, 2020.

This means you can still participate in PurpleStride, but as a virtual strider, doing something meaningful and personal to you in honor of the people you love.

If you have already registered for PurpleStride, thank you! If you haven’t, register now to get started. It’s easy, free and our community needs you.

All participants, including virtual striders, who raise $25 or more in donations (including your previously paid registration fee, if you paid to register) will receive a PurpleStride T-shirt. Your T-shirt will not be mailed to you and we will not be hosting packet pick-up — BUT you will receive your shirt for this year’s event. We will have more information about how to obtain your T-shirt in the near future.

Thank you for rallying behind our community during these unprecedented times. Pancreatic cancer affects thousands every day, and we need to continue to be here for them. Our work to change pancreatic cancer patients’ lives and to keep improving survival does not slow down or stop.

You make a difference in the fight. Know that your unrelenting and unwavering support is inspiring and deeply appreciated.
