Raised: $10,553

Goal: $10,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Scott aka 'Scooter' was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in August of 2016 at the age of 49.  He went through so much including; Whipple Surgery, Gemzar/Abraxane chemotherapy, 5-FU chemotherapy, multiple clinical trials, radiation and more.  Despite it all, he always kept a positive attitude and had a smile on his face!  Sadly, Scott passed away on April 12, 2019.  He was so greatly loved and is missed more than words can say.

Scott wanted us to continue to raise money to try and find a cure for this horrible disease! I am so thankful for the many family, friends, and co-workers for all of their support!  Since 2016 our team has raised over $50,000!  I know Scott is smiling down from heaven on all of us!!  

This year, the event is happening Nationwide on April 30 and I am beyond excited that the event will be held at Harriet Island in Saint Paul.  As many of you know, I am the Citywide Special Events Coordinator for Saint Paul Parks and Recreation and it has been my dream since the first event we participated in back in 2016 to bring this event to the City of Saint Paul - and it is coming true in 2022!!

Please join our team and recruit friends and family to do the same.  Let's get a huge group and raise lots of money for PanCan in Scott's memory!

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
