Kiss My PancreAss


Raised: $268

Goal: $500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

On November 8, 2014, my dad, Rick De La Torre, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. He passed away from this awful disease just 22 months later on September 11, 2016.

Our first PurpleStride was in 2015 and this year marks the 10th year that our team honors my dad by raising money to ultimately find a cure for this deadly cancer. Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride.

You are invited to join our team, Kiss My PancreAss, and stride in person with us near Auraria Campus. Alternatively, you can make a donation to our team, and help support efforts to increase the survival rate for this deadly disease. Ten years ago, the 5-year survival rate was 5%; today it is 12% thanks to fundraising and creating awareness!
