THE STORY:

I AM THE PURPLE WARRIOR. I am so blessed and honored to be on the Project Purple Team AGAIN. This cause is very personal for me because I lost both my mother and aunt to this disease and lost my friend Bob to it this year. I run to honor them and the strength they have demonstated as they fought this viscious  disease. I hope you will join me by contributing what you can to this worthy cause. My Minimum goal is $500 by April but I belive we can do better and get to $1000 or more.

I began running in 2012 at 59. A little over a year later I finished my first half marathon. I have ran the Lincoln Half Marathon, sprint and Olympic triathlons including the USAT National Championships. I am also an avid trail runner.At 63 I am grateful that I am healthy and can enjoy these activities. Helping raise money for this cause is one small way of giving back. Every dollar counts. Please join me and let's work together to do what we can to help fund research in hopes of better ttreatments or a cure. We are ALL Purple Warriors!

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.
