Team Bigelow


Raised: $11,512

Goal: $20,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Team Bigelow has been Waging Hope since 2008, when Elaine and Susan first participated in a 5k run in Richmond to honor Doug's memory.  Since then, the survival rate for pancreatic cancer has crept up from about 4 percent to 10 percent, but it's still way too low for the 57,000 Americans who will be diagnosed in 2020. 

Team Bigelow keeps remembering and honoring Doug and the other family members we have lost to pancreatic cancer, Joe and Helen Okula, and Shirley Okula, by lacing up our running shoes  - this is our 12th "official" PurpleStride since 2010. 

In the last few years Team Bigelow has occasionally placed in the top ten teams. Can you help us get there again this year? 

Thank you for donating!  Doug once said "I never see a reason not to smile" - and he'd be smiling now in thanks of your donation.
