Welcome to our team fundraising page!



Greetings!

Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride.

By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease.

As some of you may already know, Pancreatic Cancer awareness is something Team Super Mario All-Star's keeps near and dear to our hearts.  Striding in honor of our Team Captain's late father,  SUPER Mario Castriota. 


What you may not know is that more than 46,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year.
The five-year survival rate is just 11%.

In 2020, in just three months, America lost two remarkable icons from battles with pancreatic cancer. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a three-time cancer survivor who unfortunately lost her second bout with the deadly cancer and Congressman John Lewis just seven months after announcing his battle with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in December 2019.
Imagine losing a loved one in seven months. In 2013, I didn't have to imagine. The current median survival rate is 3 1/2 months for advanced pancreatic cancer. Super Mario beat those odds by two months. Imagine that, living for 5 months with a Stage 4 cancer is considered "beating an odd".

We can do better.
We CAN change these statistics.
We MUST do better.

Ask questions, be diligent. Like many other deadly diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease) Pancreatic cancer shows no symptoms in the early stages.

Join Team Super Mario All-Stars and commit to a healthier lifestyle today. If not for you, for your kids, your nieces and nephews, your community.
Let's beat the statistics.

Tell a friend, do some research, eat an apple instead of chips today, make that doctor's appointment, go for a walk or help support one of the the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's effort to fight this deadly disease and join Team Super Mario's All-Stars!

On event day, we will be striding together alongside hundreds of individuals who are trying to do what we can to make a difference.

Over the course of the next six weeks I am inviting you all to join me and challenge yourselves to a healthier you. Increase your water intake, make that doctor’s appointment, commit to an exercise routine, eat fruit instead of pancakes for breakfast…there are so many choices but the most important part is to start and secondly, to spread awareness!

Need ideas for a workout, a healthy meal or how you can be an advocate in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer? Team Super Mario All-Stars is here!

If you or anyone you know is interested in showing their support by donating to our team today please utilize the link above.


Your support will help fund research, provide support for patients and caregivers, and most importantly create HOPE! 

Thank you for all your support and kindness!!!


Stay tuned for more information!
