About

Thank you Virtual PurpleStride Washington, D.C. 2020 participants for showing up and supporting pancreatic cancer patients and families in your own way!

In this unprecedented “Virtual Is the New Purple” season, we applaud your flexibility, tenacity and commitment to continuing to fight for patients and against this tough disease.

It’s the support of Striders in Washington, D.C. and nationwide that gives pancreatic cancer patients and families FREE access to PanCAN’s Patient Services that can improve their lives — plus so much more.

It also ensures one thing is certain: during this time of uncertainty, patients can 100% count on PanCAN’s Patient Services being there for them.

Your fundraising is much appreciated. Please continue to do so as pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down.

Get tips for virtual fundraising.
