Stride for Jake


Raised: $1,011

Goal: $1,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

We stride for Jake! A husband, father, son, brother, and friend who lost the battle with pancreatic cancer in 2016. It was an unfair battle with a disease that is difficult to detect , brutal to fight, and almost impossible to defeat. Due to limitations in detection, Jake only battled the disease for 1 month despite feeling its effects for 2 years. We stride for early detection, better treatments, and ultimately increased survival!

In 2021 an estimated 60,430 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and 48,220 people will lose there battle with the disease. Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths and currently only has a 10% 5 year survival rate. Join us in our fight to change these statistics! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this years event will be a virtual walk on May 1st. While we will miss gathering for the event we hope we can get walkers from all over to join us and help us honor Jake. We are determined to push forward with our mission to improve the five year survival of this horrible disease. Please join us by sending well wishes, walking virtually with us on May 1st, or making a donation. We are tremendously grateful for the support.
