THE STORY:

My Story:

I am so excited for the Lincoln Marathon to be my last event in Lincoln before I move away and my first full marathon Helping Project Purple to raise awareness and money would just make the memories that much better.  For me, anything I can do to fight cancer is a big deal for me because cancer has affected so many people and families.  It is my honor to run on this team.

Thank you for your support and please donate.

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.
