Goal: $3,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Christmas 2023 will be the 5th year anniversary of the passing of Kevin Shields, husband, father and Pop-Pop, from stage IV pancreatic cancer.  We have heard of many other loved ones who have been diagnosed, and unfortunately, lost their fight with pancreatic cancer as well.

Every year since 2018, Pop-Pop's Crew has participated in the Maryland PurpleStride fundraising events to raise awareness and funding for pancreatic cancer research.  The national PurpleStride event will be held on April 27, 2024 in order to unite us all in our mission to stop this silent killer.

We do not want Kevin, Theresa, Melody, Will, Ruth, Jo and others to just become statistical numbers.  Please consider donating to our team and show your support by joining our team as a participant at the main event in April.

Registration is free, participation can occur wherever you live and sharing our page helps spread the word about this important cause.

We can do our part to help ensure the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue their efforts to increase pancreatic cancer survival and provide tools for patients, caregivers and families.  Come be a member of our "purple army" and help us live to see the day when cancer can be cured for good.
