Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Let’s walk together to honor Christine Bennett and make a difference in fighting this terrible disease. 

As we enter the holiday season it feels so wrong for our mom not to be here with us. In February 2020 our family was in very regular touch - planning, checking in on one another, passing the time - and then mom got sick and died so quickly. As we get our vaccinations, are able to share a meal together again, watch Abigail and Nora start high school and middle school, and consider holiday plans of which she was so fond, it seems totally unfair that she’s not here to share in that with us. 

We were not able to have a traditional memorial service because of the pandemic. So we would like to ask, with no expectation, if you might like to join us in remembering our mom through participation in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s purple stride on April 30, 2022 in Baltimore - either on person or in spirit. You are welcome to join our team, make a donation, or root us on if you can. 

We chose a picture of mom on a happy day to share on our team page. Through research and innovation we hope that some progress can be made against this terrible disease so that in the future family’s get more time together after diagnosis. 

Lisa, Alexander, and Bill
