Ken's Krew


Raised: $1,261

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome Ken's Krew! We will walk together on April 30, 2022 in honor of Ken Birne's short but valiant battle with pancreatic adenocarcinoma. When Ken was diagnosed with pancreas cancer in December 2019, his cancer was already locally advanced and considered inoperable. There weren't many great options to treat his cancer. His disease progressed very quickly on chemotherapy and he passed away at home, surrounded by family, on July 1, 2020. He was the best father, Poppa, and friend, and we miss him as much today as the day he left us.

We must work together to raise funding for pancreatic cancer research so that we can help patients and loved ones like Ken live longer, or even find a cure! Please consider walking with us or making a donation towards this incredible cause!

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services 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 as a participant, 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.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
