Welcome to our team fundraising page!

I lost my dad, Thomas Curran, to pancreatic cancer on October 13, 2023. He had gone to the doctor repeatedly to try to figure out what was wrong with him. After months and months of tests and his health steadily declining, they finally diagnosed him with pancreatic cancer, it was too late for anything to be done. I'm doing this walk and raising this money in honor of him. He loved being outside and walked 5 miles every morning. This cancer needs more funding for research so that other families don't have to go through what my dad and our family went through. I miss him so much, but I feel closer to him every time I go for a walk outside. 

Please consider donating or joining my team to help raise money and awareness. The walk is taking place in multiple cities across the country, so everyone can join, regardless of how near or far you are. 

Thank you all for your continued support through all of this. Love you, Dad.
