Welcome to our team fundraising page!

This year, we participate in honor and memory of our beloved friend and colleague, Dave Anderson.  Dave lost his battle with Pancreatic Cancer on May 8, 2019.  Dave was diagnosed with Stage III, locally advanced, Pancreatic Cancer in June 2016.  According to statistics, this diagnosis most likely meant less than a year to live. Dave spent every day of those three years after his diagnosis embracing each hurdle thrown his way with a positive outlook.  He is greatly missed, but he left a lasting impact on all of us.  We participate this year with the hope research and advancements mean greater chances of survival for others facing the same diagnosis.

Due to Covid-19, PurpleStride DFW 5K/1Mile 2021 will be postponed to April 30, 2022.  We look forward to picking back up the in-person event in 2022.  

Cancer touches all of us directly or through family and friends. We must join in the fight to find cures for all cancers. Please consider participating virtually to the event and/or donating to our team.


Money raised will benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
