Hello all and welcome to my Project Purple Lincoln half Marathon fundraiser website. I'm running the Lincoln half marathon for Project Purple to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer. Will you please donate to my cause?
Why am I doing this?
Last year when I ran the Lincoln half Marathon as part of Project Purple team, I didn't realize the amount of support that I would have. While the Lincoln Marathon is a very well attended event for runners and spectators, being part of Project Purple added to my experience. There were Project Purple supporters throughout the race cheering the team on. I don't think that I went a mile without someone calling me out as part of the team and cheering me on. And having Dino and Elli at the end of the race to congratulate each and every Project Purple team member was a great end to a great race. So I am at it again and hope that you can help support me and this wonderful cause.
If this is your first experience with Project Purple, it is a charity that uses running as a means of bringing awareness and to gain support for the fight against Pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading casue of cancer deaths. 94% die within 5 years of being diagnosed. It is the 1st in mortality rate of all major cancers. And there are ZERO methods of early detection that have been discovered. And Project Purple is dedicated to change these numbers.
Hopefully with your donations and support for me, we will be able to help Project Purple beat Pancreatic Cancer.
Thanks for your help.
