Walk For Austin


Raised: $1,180

Goal: $3,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Our team, Walk for Austin, is walking in memory of Austin L Roberts III. While he is no longer physically with us, our goal is to help raise awareness for this disease that has such a high mortality rate. Austin was diagnosed in 2008 with this disease and he fought for 3 years. Austin will always be remembered as a loving and kind-hearted person. He was a husband, a father, a leader, a friend, a confidant, a mentor and so many other things, but above all the titles he could hold, he was humble and selfless. While no amount of money will bring him back, joining our team or even donating just a little will help find a cure for this terrible disease, so that no other family or community will have to lose a loved one.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can't take away our determination.

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2023.

Purple ribbons aren't enough. Please join us in the fight today.
