PROJECT PURPLE's Fundraiser:

Big Sur 2016

PROJECT PURPLE's Photo

BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE

EVENT DATE: Apr 24, 2016

THE STORY:

Project Purple's mission: to beat pancreatic cancer. Our Method: participating in the best road races in the world. This is the first time we've ever run in the Big Sur, and we're so ready to rock it! Yes, even the hills. Each of our runners has been touched by pancreatic cancer in some way, and will be running and fundraising 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.
