Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My cause is Pancreatic Cancer which took my mom, Kittie Wack, almost 8 years ago. Each year, more friends lose family and friends to this nasty disease. 

This is Team GKittie 10th year participating. Mom passed in August 2014. Having been diagnosed in April 2012, right before this picture was taken. I look at this picture almost every day. I see her smiling at me and a little twinkle in her eyes. Kittie fought this cancer for over 2 years. 

Kittie was an avid walker and runner. She ran & walked throughout her life from 5ks to marathons. Prior to diagnosis, she was walking a half marathon each month! 5k is just 3 short miles among family and friends celebrating their loved ones and showcasing their purple. 

Team GKittie is raising money in honor of Kittie and many other family and friends who have been affected by Pancreatic Cancer. This horrible disease's 5-year survival rate is a whopping 11%. =(

By donating or joining our team, you are supporting efforts to increase the survival of this deadly disease, help with research for early detections, and support those who are currently fighting. 

This year might be the first one since Covid to be in-person! Excited to see a sea of purple strolling again. Join us on April 30.

Thank you for helping us honor Kittie!
