Raised: $2,167

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Bob McElroy is a dad, poppop, husband, brother, uncle, and friend. He is also one of more than 56,000 Americans who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019. It is the world's toughest cancer, with the lowest survival rate of all major cancers. This deadly disease has taken too much from the world, but it can't take away our hope and determination. 

We’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Our team is walking for Bob, waging hope for a long, happy, healthy future. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today? By donating, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival. 

Though this year's PurpleStride has been pushed back due to COVID-19, pancreatic cancer does not stop, and neither do we. Pancreatic cancer patients need our help now more than ever. Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Purple ribbons aren't enough. Please join me in the fight today. Your support is so appreciated by the McElroy family and by so many. Thank you.
