PurpleStride is a 5K fun run and walk that raises awareness about the critical mission of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. This event gives local residents the opportunity to help make strides toward a better future. The PurpleStride events contribute millions of dollars toward the mission to advance research, support patients and create hope. Funds raised help to provide personalized support for patients and support research grants and advocacy efforts to increase federal pancreatic cancer research funding. Your registration fees go toward finding a cure.
