Raised: $360

Goal: $2,020

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

PurpleStrideKC is back and in-person on April 30, 2022! We’ll be coming together with 58 other communities on one big day for maximum impact on raising awareness and funds.

Team Jan King is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in the 2022 PurpleStrideKC in memory of my Aunt Jan. My Aunt Jan was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004 and died from this brutal disease after a 15-month battle.

In the past few years, the five-year survival rate has risen from 6% to 10%. It's amazing progress but a 10 percent is just not enough. This still means 90% of those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within five years of diagnosis. Our goal is to double the five-year survival rate from 10% to 20% by 2030.

Please consider registering for the event or making a donation today and help us reach our fundraising goal!

Thank you!
