Team LaTourette


Raised: $9,381

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

As many of you know,in August of 2016 our loving dad and husband, Steve LaTourette, lost his 2-yearbattle against pancreatic cancer.  Since then, it has been important for Emma and Henry to feel we were doing something, both to honor Steve and to help others in this fight.  Once a year we put together a team for PurpleStrideDC to raise money for pancreatic cancer and ask friends, family and community members to either walk/run with us, or support the team if they are so inclined.   After a pandemic hiatus, we are back at it this year!

We know there can be “charity fatigue” when you get so many of these type of requests, any number of worthy causes, and many of you have supported us generously in the past.   We are appreciative and understand if this isn’t your plans for this year.  However, if you are either 1) one of those 5k type-people who just likes to do these races  (???);  2) inclined to support a fundraiser like this in an effort to help combat this deadly disease (did you know that thanks to our progress, the 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer has increased over the last few years and is now 11%?); or 3) might just be willing to come join us on April 30th at Freedom Plaza to enjoy an outdoor event for a good cause-  we would love to have you as part of TEAM LATOURETTE!

We are obviously grateful for any donation (ANY amount is exciting and huge to the kids), but it truly is seeing the names of friends and family on their page and your presence that day (if you are local) that is so meaningful and allows the kids to see the very real, live TEAM LATOURETTE that is there to walk with them and honor Steve.

Thank you for considering the request!

-Jennifer, Emma and Henry
