Welcome to our team fundraising page!

       This will be the ninth year for us to have a team in honor of Victoria Winkler, who was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in April of 2016.    She endured more than 50 chemo infusions and an extensive surgery with grace and grit.  She participated in multiple clinical trials at Simon Cancer Center and at Sarah Cannon Cancer Center.  On March 12, 2020 Vicki lost her valiant battle to this dreadful disease and is now our angel.
