Carl's Crew is back for our 8th year. Each year the team as grown and we've raised more funds than the previous year. Last year we had 60+ join us and raised over $7,000. This day has become a favorite among friends and family.
Pancreatic cancer is close to the Brown family as it took the the life of Carl Brown at the much too young age of 48. In 2011, which coincidentally was the inaugural year of Carl's Crew, pancan.org set an ambitious goal to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. At the time, the survival rate was just 6%. In January 2020, for the first time, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer has reached 10%. We still have a long way to go, but we're making progress and it's cool to be part of something that is making a difference.
As the event gets closer, Mike and I will coordinate a pre-run meeting spot and post run drinking establishment. In the mean time, invite your friends and get ready to have a Saturday.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to join the crew. Hope to see you there.
