Raised: $17,780

Goal: $15,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

As many of you know, Matt recently passed away after fiercely battling pancreatic cancer for over 2 years. Matt was an amazing, courageous, caring, and inspiring brother, uncle, father, husband, and friend. He is the definition of a hero. Our team, Team Buzz, is raising money in honor of Matt to support PanCAN's mission of advancing research, supporting patients, and creating hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. 

We’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal – because the more money we raise, the bigger impact we make – and would be profoundly grateful for your donation. Please consider donating to help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Your support and encouragement mean the world.  A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.  

Want to help in a bigger way? We’d love for you to join our team! Just click the Register button at the top of this page to get started. Register for free, raise $50 and you’ll receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

In addition to raising money for the PanCAN PurpleStride event, which takes place on Saturday, April 27, 2024, we will be running/walking/limping (thanks to some injuries) our way through the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half Marathon on Sunday, April 28th.
