    Team Papa gearing up for Purplestride, April 30th 2022

Team Papa

RAISED: $47,437

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

On April 30th 2022 Team Papa will join Purplestride's across 60 cities in the US to remember our father, Michael Koplow who lost his life to pancreatic cancer 10 years ago.  It's fitting that this fundraiser falls on what would have been his birthday.  Today, the 5 year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is 10%; 10 years ago it was 5%.   We "stride" to move pancreatic cancer from one of the deadliest cancers to one in which patients can survive and continue with their lives. 

In order to support the determined work of the PanCAN (a 4-star Charity Navigator organization), we will be matching all gifts up to $25K made to support PanCAN's mission to guide patients to the best treatments approaches and to fund breakthrough research. Please join us by supporting Team Papa on April 30th.   Many thanks, Paul, Hilarie, Leslie & Jeff Koplow
