Welcome to our team fundraising page!

We all have our own causes, mine is Pancreatic Cancer which took my mom, Kittie Wack, almost 6 years ago. Each year, more friends lose family and friends to this nasty disease.

This is Team GKittie 8th year participating and we miss mom every day. She passed in August 2014. Having been diagnosed in April 2012, Kittie fought this cancer for over 2 years. Kittie was an avid walker and runner. She ran & walked throughout her life from 5ks to marathons. Prior to diagnosis, she was walking a half marathon each month! 5k is just 3 short miles among family and friends celebrating their loved ones and showcasing their purple. 

Team GKittie is raising money in honor of Kittie and many other family and friends who have been affected by Pancreatic Cancer. This horrible disease's 5-year survival rate is 10%. That's it and only 5 years! By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double the survival of this deadly disease. 

Help me and others Wage Hope against one of the deadliest diseases today by making a donation or joining Team GKittie. This year will be a virtual event so get out and walk/run a 5K in your neighborhood in your purple to show your pride and to fight Pancreatic Cancer on June 20.

Thank you for helping us honor Kittie!
