Virtual PurpleStride Omaha 2020

IMPORTANT: OMAHA PURPLESTRIDE EVENT UPDATE

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 Omaha on July 18, 2020.

This means you can still participate in PurpleStride, but as a virtual participant, 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 participants, 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.

Strider Stories 

It was by pure chance that I went to the emergency room one day in May. Who knew what I thought was “gas pain” would change my life forever.

In 1989, Todd Horne lost his mother to the disease. Then in 2015, Todd was diagnosed with stage II pancreatic cancer.

Editor’s Note: Todd lost his fight with pancreatic cancer, but his story continues to inspire others to Demand Better for patients and their families.

We stride because it's what "Papa Z" would have done. Creating Team Papa Z has been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Serving as PurpleStride Team Captain of the Yes We Xan team has been a way for me to harness my energy to help my beloved son, Xan, fight pancreatic cancer.

There's a number of other terms I could use to describe myself and our pancreatic cancer journey. But these are primary, and this is the reason I'm sharing my story. Our story.

Like many others, my involvement with PanCAN began with the loss of a loved one. My brother, Jim, just three days after his 60th birthday and only 27 days after his diagnosis, passed away from pancreatic cancer.

We stride to make sure that other people have a chance, because a five year survival rate of 10 percent is unacceptable and because it's what "Papa Z" would have done.
