Welcome to our team fundraising page!

WELCOME TO THE unofficial BOEING & Friends PurpleStride TEAM!!!!!!!!!

Whether you're someone I work with or a friend/family member of someone here at Boeing, I'm super happy to have you here! All are welcome to join our team to help SLAM the worst cancer challenging us today.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen some of our best and brightest as well as many of those dear to our families and friends. Although you don't hear about it often enough, you likely know someone close who has had their life impacted by Pancreatic cancer. 

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. This year's PurpleStride takes place on Sunday, September 27th. The location is ANYWHERE! Due to the current state of the world, this year's event is virtual. So any time on September 27th, you can go out with whoever you're quarantining with and safely run/walk your own 5k route! There will be a sheet to submit time afterward. There's also going to be a virtual "passport", which will contain a visual representation of the event village along with links to survivor speeches, opening ceremonies, and tons of additional content you'd typically see on race day!

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. I seriously mean every dollar! This team seriously appreciates even the smallest donations. I'd love to see over 100x $1 donations, as we'll be spreading our message that far while still contributing to the financial fight. 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 the fight today.


In case you're wondering, "What's with the name?", please note I'm big onpuns and SLAM is the name of my program at Boeing and PanCan is the name of the organization, so we are SLAMcan!
