Gary's Purple Striders: "Live-Laugh-Love"

Gary's Purple Striders: "Live-Laugh-Love"


Raised: $3,085

Goal: $1,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In October 2021, our Dad/Grandpa Gary was diagnosed with advanced stage pancreatic cancer. Gary is an inspiration with his continued strength and humor as he battles this horrible disease,  continuing to remind us to "Live, Love and Laugh" always through this journey and gift of life. 

In honor and support of our Dad and Grandpa, we are participating in PanCAN's PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and service for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please join our team, "Gary's Purple Striders: "Live-Love-Laugh" and walk with my family and I on Saturday, April 30 at Harriet Island in St. Paul, or make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Thank you for your support.
