Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!


We are taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

This year we are raising money for Pancreatic Cancer research. This is an organization is one that is close to our hearts. As a very important member of our family lost his life to this terrible disease. 

We remember Meldwyn MacDonald as a fighter, father, husband, uncle, dog lover,  best friend and so much more. Mel loved spending time with his family, watching and playing sports- especially Manchester United, poker, softball, bowling, his coffee truck and Red Firebird and his man's best friend dog Jax. 

He fought nearly three years undergoing treatment and clinical trails to help in the fight against this disease. We ask for your support as we take one step closer to finding a cure. 

From 2014 to 2018, the 5-years survival rate for pancreatic cancer increased from 6% to 10%, which shows that progress is being made from the funds raised from these events!

We want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we need your help to do that!

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and I’d love for you to join me! Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. And anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support!
