Recognition Deadlines


Everyone who is registered and raises or makes a personal donation of $25 or more by Sunday, March 21 will receive a PurpleStride T-shirt!* This spring, T-shirts will be mailed directly to supporters who meet the deadline, to the address given during registration. No in-person T-shirt pick-ups will be held, so be sure you register and raise $25 in time for your shirt to be mailed. Most shirts should arrive the week of your event, but some shipping delays may be out of our control.

*All pancreatic cancer survivors who register by the deadline for PurpleStride are eligible to receive a special survivor T-shirt, and no fundraising minimum is required.
