Project Purple is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization with a mission of raising awareness and funds towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest cancer killer and is the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer in the top 10 with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.
Having been directly affected by Pancreatic Cancer, this team understands what it is like to lose someone you love and the sense of empowerment that is gained to ensure that others don’t have to experience such pain. To help advance the research for cures and treatments we all will be running on the Project Purple #DoItForLou Team at the Baltimore Half Marathon on Saturday, October 18th.
Project Purple has a three-tier program consisting of research, an annual college scholarship program, and financial aid for families who are affected by Pancreatic Cancer. Thank you in advance for your support. Please visit www.run4projectpurple.org for more information. With your support, we can save lives.
For every $25 that is donated to this page, you will be entered for a chance to win an autographed bat by New York Yankees First Baseman, Mark Teixeira. Winner will be announced on race day!
