ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Hello friends and family,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising profile for Project Purple. NYC will be my second marathon after being bitten by the running bug in the beginning of my freshman year at college.
I am running as part of the Project Purple team because of my dad. In 2014, my dad was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer. He has undergone various rounds of chemo and a whipple surgery and is doing quite well. He is definitely a true fighter and the least I could do is challenge myself physically and mentally in order to raise awareness for this horrible disease.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the harshest cancers out there and unfortunately it takes many lives away too soon. It is incredibly difficult to detect early and the money raised by Project Purple goes to research devoted for early detection and finding a cure.
Thank you all for your support and generous donations. I will be documenting my training on my instagram @patricioagal. See you in Central Park in November!
