Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

In honor  of Jared Melrath and all of the lives he touched, it’s time for us to do something to support research and save lives. Let’s find purpose from the pain! 

I started a team and we are taking steps together at the Maryland PanCAN PurpleStride, on Saturday, April 27, 2024. To my amazement when I was researching it this year, to find out it was right here in Catonsville sealed the deal for me. It is meant to be that it is in Jared’s town he loved so much. 

PurpleStride participants raise money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients; free, personalized, one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services; and more.

Here’s where you come in! I’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal and need your donations! A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Any donation will go towards our team goal and be in memory of Jared Melrath. 

Want to help in a bigger way? Join me by registering for PurpleStride! Register for free, raise $50 and you’ll receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt! Message melanie if you want to join our team! The more that want to walk and get “Movin for Melrath” the better. 

I’m grateful for your support! Let’s start making moves! Movin for Melrath!
