Goal: $15,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

PurpleStride is back, in person, at Soldier Field!  And we need you more than ever to help us raise awareness of this disease and fund the work of PanCAN's scientific community to develop early detection methods, find better drug therapies, create targeted clinical trials, support patients' need for information through PanCAN's Patient Central, and ultimately, end this disease.

This year, PurpleStride is happening on the same day across the nation! This is a big deal. We're making a big splash to continue building awareness of this pancreatic cancer. Awareness is the first step toward increased donations needed to give hope to those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer to live a quality life. More than 60,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2022. That is 166 people diagnosed every single day. Pancreatic cancer is the 11th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S., and it is the 3rd most deadly, with the lowest survival rate. 

If you supported us in the past, thank you. If you are able to continue that support this year, we humbly ask you to click "DONATE TO THIS TEAM" to help us reach our fundraising goal. 

Maybe you would like to stride with us, and help raise critically needed funds for research.  We'd love to have you on team CARA Friends.  Just click "JOIN THIS TEAM" below and create your own personal fundraising page.

Thank you for your support!
