Welcome to our team fundraising page!

To all our family and friends,

TEAM GOPHER is back at again for another year! The amount of support we received last year was amazing. Our family is forever grateful for those that contributed as well as participated. It was an unforgettable event and we hope to make this a tradition not only to honor the man that we all love and miss dearly but to help raise awareness for this terrible disease. PLEASE consider joining us or contributing to this amazing event! Can we beat last years fundraising efforts?

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in Madison on May 2020 for a 5k run/walk to honor my dad, James Franken and all other families that have been impacted by this terrible disease.
