Thank you for all your support !

My journey started March 3rd 2018. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I have felt the love and support of everyone. It is amazing. We won't be able to walk together this year, but I am still hoping to raise money to help save lives from PC and also help support those who are diagnosed. 

Though in-person PurpleRideStride events are temporarily on pause due to COVID-19, pancreatic cancer does not stop, and neither do we. Join us from wherever you are and help us reach our $10M goal this year. Register (it’s free!), build your team and start fundraising today.

UPDATE: Because your safety is our top priority, PurpleRideStride Minnesota is a virtual event this year. We invite you to participate in your own way, from anywhere, on Saturday, September 12, 2020. See our FAQ for more information.

Connect with other virtual PurpleRideStriders in your area by joining the Minnesota Affiliate Facebook Group. Get inspired, share fundraising ideas and celebrate together!
