Pass It On

Pass It On


Raised: $252

Goal: $680

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Hello friends,

This donation page is to honor my dad, Jim Briggs, who was larger than life in every possible way. He was always performing random acts of kindness for others and did everything he could to make the world a brighter place. Any time he would treat a stranger by unexpectedly covering the cost of their purchase, he would respond by saying "Pass it on." 

If we all performed more loving acts of kindness and encouraged each other to "pass it on," the world would indeed be a brighter place for everyone.

We lost dad to pancreatic cancer in August 2020. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadliest forms, with the lowest survival rate because it's often detected too late.

Dad's cancer was found early, and we were assured of a successful treatment plan. Yet when they attempted to remove the tumor via surgery, it was deemed "inoperable."  That is when we had to come to terms with the possibility that we would lose him much sooner than we ever expected, at 68 years old.

My team fundraising goal is $680 because dad liked unique meaningful numbers :)  He was quirky like that! Please consider donating to help fund the research to improve treatment for pancreatic cancer. And please consider treating a stranger to an act of kindness and encouraging them to "pass it on."

With love and gratitude,


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

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