Freddy's Fighters


Raised: $4,642

Goal: $4,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Team Freddy's Fighters was established in 2019, after losing my Daddy in March of that year. We have stepped up to Wage Hope in PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Since our first walk together with family and friends, we have raised over $15,900 in the fight!  This is our fourth year fighting and our goal this year is $4,500 in the hopes that we will surpass $20,000 in honor of Dad.

We honor Federico "Freddy" Rodriguez, husband, father, grandpa, & friend. Federico was a proud U.S. Senior Customs Inspector who fought a brave battle. Daddy loved to cook and BBQ, invest in properties, hit the "pulga", go to the casino, and he absolutely loved a good joke, was very quick witted and had a wonderful sense of humor! I miss his laugh, his advice, his calls to tell me about the weather and traffic, a funny story or "chisme" and that he always had my back.  He is gone in body but not in spirit.  His memory lives on in the stories we tell about him and we know he is watching over us.  He is missed beyond measure, and we stand United in his honor as Freddy's Fighters.

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. You can join our team and walk with us OR you can make any donation amount in supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival rates! We will walk together as Freddy's Fighters on April 29, 2023. Make any donation or to get a free t-shirt make a $50 donation and join our team!

Purple ribbons aren't enough. This disease does not discriminate and attacks when least expected. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will make a difference. We never expected to join this fight and we pray that you are never put in the ring with this deadly disease.

Join us in our fourth year of Purple Stride San Antonio in honor of Freddy/Lico! Give today and make a difference! We're counting on you.

With much love & appreciation - We are Freddy's Fighters,

The Rodriguez & Diaz Families
