Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

Hey, there!

Our team of Alpha Mack is taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023, at Soldier Field.

We want to make an impact - and we need your help to do that!

Our team is walking in memory of John McCormack who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in early November, 2021 and lost his battle on July 22, 2022.  The team name Alpha Mack was chosen by his three sons, Connor, Sean, and Matt.  The boys said their friends would always call their dad "Alpha Mack".  John was a larger than life character who's life was cut way too short.  He was a loving father, loving husband to Joli, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend to many.  John never lost his sense of humor and fought this horrible cancer with courage and dignity.

Here’s how you can help! We’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal – because the more money we raise, the bigger impact we make – and appreciate a gift of any size to help us get there.  You can make your donation to any of the teams members.

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and we’d love for you to join our team! Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. And anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2023 T-shirt!

Can we count on you to get us one step closer to the day where there is a cure for pancreatic cancer?

Thank you for your support and again we appreciate any contribution you can make! Come join us on Saturday, April 29th!!
