THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Addison Earnest, I am 12 years old and 2016 will be my 2nd year running for Project Purple in the Lincoln half Marathon. I have always enjoyed running and wanted to try a half marathon for a few years.  Project Purple gave me the oppportunity to honor my Mom, Lynette Earnest, who passed away last year from cancer at only 47 years old, and to benefit cancer research and other people who are battling this terrible disease! Most everyone probably knows at least one person who is fighting or who has lost their lives to cancer, so your help would be greatly appreciated in helping me to reach, or even exceed my fundraising goals!  Project Purple uses these funds for Research Grants, Patient Financial Aid, and Scholarships to people that have been affected by this disease.  Thank you for reading this and for your support!!!         Sincerely, Addison Earnest

Project Purple's mission: to beat pancreatic cancer. Our Method: participating in the best road races in the world. The Lincoln Marathon and Half is amaing! This race is at the top of our list for all time favorite marathons, from the warm and welcoming people of Nebraska, the excitement and emergy of the organizers and participants, and the love and support of the Lincoln Track Club. We are so excited and proud to be the official charity of this event for a second year. Our team will be running to support our three programs, listed below.

 

Research

In the last four years, our charity has provided $500K in grants to top medical centers specializing in the study of pancreatic cancer. We have carefully selected institutions based on the quality of their work and their researchers. Recipients include Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, NYU, and Columbia. Grants have also been awarded to postdoctoral students and professional researchers, to support studies in early detection methods, a cure, and a better understanding of the mysterious and deadly disease.

 

Patient Financial Aid

Project Purple helps support families and individuals dealing with the financial burden of pancreatic cancer. Patients who are currently battling are given support with medical bills, living expenses, and travel. We also give care packages to patients to provide comfort during hospital visits.

 

Scholarships

For the past three years, Project Purple has helped undergraduate, graduate, and nursing students achieve their academic goals by providing scholarships. These awards are given to bright, passionate students whose lives have been adversely affected by pancreatic cancer. Many have lost parents or other close relatives to the disease, other had the disease themselves.
