Welcome to our team fundraising page!

With a grateful heart and feeling very blessed, I am once again raising funds for PurpleStride Indianapolis in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  Purple Stride is an incredible community celebration and centerpiece for the PanCAN family.  In 2011 when Joan and I first walked in Purple Stride Indianapolis, I had little hope that I would be here in 2022!  At that time, the 5-year survival rate for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer was just 5%.  Today that has risen to 11%, but there is much work still to be done.  Pancreatic cancer has moved up to the position of the No. 3 leading cause of cancer-related death, and it is predicted to become the No. 2 leading cause.  In the last 11 years, I have talked with numerous individuals diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and lost a brother-in-law to this dreadful disease in 2015.  I have tried to give hope and support to those fighting this disease.  And that is what your donations accomplish as well.  Your support gives me hope that research will continue in the causes and treatments for pancreatic cancer.  My life and many others may depend on it!    

On April 30, 2022, we will once again be holding PurpleStride in person in downtown Indianapolis at the White River State Park.  Click below on JOIN THIS TEAM.  If you donate or raise $50, you will receive a T-shirt (delivery method yet TBD).  If you wish to donate without receiving a T-shirt, we welcome your donation by clicking on DONATE above.  Pancreatic cancer affects thousands every day, and we need to continue to be here for all.  Our work to change pancreatic cancer patients' lives- and to keep improving survival- does not slow down or stop.  You make a difference in the fight.  Know that your unrelenting and unwavering support over these last 11 years is inspiring and deeply appreciated.

Please make a donation today to Team Nicolet and help us reach our fundraising goal!
