Purple for Paw

Purple for Paw


Raised: $5,573

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

We run & walk in the memory of Fred Kirby (aka: Paw) who fought a courageous 10 month battle against pancreatic cancer.

2020 is our team’s 5th year with PurpleStride-Charlotte. We walked in our first PurpleStride in September 2016, just 7 weeks after Paw’s diagnosis.  Paw lost his battle against this terrible disease on June 1, 2017. We came back to PurpleStride in 2017 with a new passion to keep fighting the fight that Paw wanted so badly to win. 

You can join our team and/or make a donation. We are grateful for every single dollar raised. Thank you all for your love & support of my family's fight against this terrible cancer!
