Thank you for visiting our fundraiser page - you rock!
Our names are Chelsea and Amanda. We are in our 20s and ready to take on the 2016 OC Half Marathon! We never thought we would be the marathon runner type, until we found the Project Purple team (see description below). In a nutshell, we are fundraising for Project Purple to raise money towards pancreatic cancer research.
Both of our families have been affected by this disease. Specifically, we both lost an uncle to pancreatic cancer. Most recently, Amanda's Uncle Mingy bravely fought a seven month battle with stage four pancreatic cancer. He passed away in late October.
We want to honor Amanda's Uncle Mingy, my Uncle Danny, and all those who have been affected by this terrible disease by running in this event. Every dollar you donate will help us meet our $1000 fundraising goal.
Please be a total rockstar and donate at least $5 to our fundraiser. Skip the Starbucks for one day and use your money for a great cause!
Thank you for your support! - Chelsea and Amanda
