THE STORY:

This year I am running the Lincoln Half-Marathon in support of my dear friend, Elli Zadina's Dad, Gary.  Elli came into my life almost two years ago when she moved in down the street from me.  We became fast friends and running buddies.  Elli's strength, determination, and infectious, bubbly personality inspires me in so many ways.  Recently, her sweet Dad, Gary was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Tragically, Elli's Mom passed away from this same horrific disease just three years ago. The pain I am witnessing Elli endure as she supports her Dad through the nightmare of fighting pancreatic cancer absolutely breaks my heart. I look forward to running by Elli's side and I am proud to be a part of Project Purple's team for the Lincoln Marathon and Half.  #milesforGary

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.
