Striding for Syl!


Raised: $1,636

Goal: $4,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

I created this team for my Dad, Sylvain, who we lost to pancreatic cancer almost 5 years ago.  In this time we've walked in his honor for PurpleStride and raised over $40,000!  I will not allow his death to be in vain!  So, I want to continue fundraising in his honor for the 2023 Maryland Walk in Catonsville on April 29th.  

Pancreatic cancer only has a 10% survival rate.  This is just unacceptable.  One of the main reasons for this is that its underfunded and not researched enough.  My team goal this year is to raise $4,000 in honor of what would have been Dad's 62nd birthday.  I start up this page each year on his birthday November 30th which also wraps up the end of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

My Dad participated in a clinical trial that is working to help find better treatments for pancreatic cancer.  So, even in his death, my Dad is helping others.  Please join my Dad in helping others by donating to find a cure or sign up for free to join us for the walk on April 29th! 

Thank you for supporting our team through the years and honoring my Dad!
