These are uncertain times. As of April 3rd, we don't know if we'll be striding at Soldier Field or virtually striding in our homes on June 27th. The Covid-19 virus has taken everyone's attention - and with good reason. So our need to fund raise for those dedicated scientists to continue their research on early detection, clinical trials for advanced drug therapies, and ultimately to end this disease, is more critical than ever. That's why we are asking for your help.
Over 145 people are diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer every single day. In the US, pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths. Patients diagnosed have the lowest 5-year survival rate - just 10%. This is unacceptable! We must #demandbetter. We must #takeaction. We must #fundthefight.
PurpleStride is the flagship fundraiser for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. This 5K walk or run is held in cities s across the nation with the goal of elevating national awareness of this cause and fund the scientific community to make the progress we need.
Please join us ...
If you have a few coins you can spare for this worthy cause, we humbly ask for your donation today!
Or, register now to stride with us - it may be virtually, but there is plenty of room on this team for more CARA friends!
