THE STORY:

Hi everyone ! 

I'm super excited to be part of Project Purple this year. This is my 1st year fundraising for Project Purple & the fight against pancreatic cancer.

This disease is near & dear to my heart because one of my good friends, Bill R., died from the disease two years ago this March.  I miss him greatly. I want to run the Lincoln Half in his memory.

I hope you will help me reach my goal of $500 for this important cause!

ABOUT Project Purple:

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

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
