Join us in our first ever Dallas Marathon! Dating back to 1971, the organization hosts year-round events culminating with Dallas’ largest and Texas’ oldest running marathon: the Dallas Marathon. Now in its 45th running, the marquee property attracts runners from across the globe and hundreds of thousands of spectators to Dallas’ largest single-day sporting event.
Project Purple is running in this race to raise money and awareness for pancreatic cancer. We use funds raised in all our races to support our three main programs: research, patient aid, and scholarships.
I am running in memory of my mother, Margaret Wilson Robbins. She lost her battle with pancreatic cancer 20 years ago, at the age of 51. Hoping to raise awareness and support to fight this deadly disease!
