Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to the TEAM THEO PurpleStride Team Walking and Fundraising Page!

It's hard to believe it has been five years since John "Pappy" 'Theo" Theofanis was a physical presence in our lives.  

He was living proof that every day is a new day.  In the last years of his life, he did ALL THE THINGS for the FIRST TIME.  He wrote a book.  He started painting (so prolifically that he hosted several art shows). He competed in the Funniest Person in Austin contest.  He became certified to officiate at weddings (and he did!). He coined "LOBU" the term for the stretch of Burnet Road in Austin between Research Blvd and Medical Arts Rd.

You couldn't help but feel joyful, supported, and relaxed in his presence. This is why we walk. This is why we raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients; free, personalized, one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services; and more.

Here’s where you come in! 

We would be profoundly grateful for your donationA gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis -- $5, $10, $25, $40, $100, $1,000 can make a difference.

Want to do more? We’d love for you to join Team Theo on Sat. April 27th at Camp Mabry! Just click the Register button at the top of this page to get started. Registration is free.  (Note that you are registering for the San Antonio race, so if you raise $50 you are eligible to receive a 2024 T-shirt, but our team will not be walking in San Antonio where t-shirt pick up is).

Thank you for in advance for your support and keeping good memories alive!
