Goal: $5,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

We're taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024 and we need your support!!

We organized this team for a third year to honor our Moms' lives, memories, and battles against pancreatic cancer. April 2024 marks four years since we lost Jan and Joan to this horrible disease. They both enjoyed sunny days, spending time with their families and grandkids, and summer fun - Joan boating at the lake and Jan enjoying the beach and waves. 

PanCAN PurpleStride is the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer. It is the #1 way PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, and gives them free, personalized support through PanCAN Patient Services. Your participation and fundraising keep PanCAN's vital programs running so patients and their families don't have to navigate this journey on their own. Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. PurpleStride is an inspirational day to honor those we lost, celebrate survivors, and turn the nation purple!

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift of any amount to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team. Anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 t-shirt! 

We hope as many of you as possible can walk with us at the Cleveland Zoo on April 27th!

The Gaydos, Kocher, Gregg & Kaszar families thank you for your support!
