Balch Brigade


Raised: $5,832

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

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

The Balch Brigade is participating in PanCAN'S Purple Stride because it's personal!  We lost our amazing father and grandfather to pancreatic cancer in 2021.  Kris was an extraordinary human being.  He was unbelievably smart, had an incredible sense of humor, was a devoted family man who taught his kids a strong work ethic and the importance of humility and kindness.  Kris was a craftsman and adventurer.  His children and grandchildren feel blessed to have been influenced by him and are proud to carry the twisted Balch gene.  We are walking and raising funds in Kris' honor.

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.

Thank you for supporting the Balch family!
