BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I am running the OC Marathon in memory of my Grandmother, or as i called her, "Mima", who recently lost her battle to pancreatic cancer. My Mima was an amazing women who was always full of life, wisdom, and happiness. She was also incredibly strong. During my grandmothers battle with Pancreatic Cancer I never saw her cry and she never asked why this had to happen to her. Instead, she spent all her time in the company of her family and friends; she was simply happy to be around those she loved, regardless of the cancer and it's effects on her.
I am lucky to have so many great memories of my grandmother but pancreatic cancer took her too soon. I am fundraising for Project Purple. Project Purple and the entire OC Marathon team run in an effort to raise funds for pancreatic cancer reasearch, patient aid, and scholarships. Your generous donations to my fundraising page will help to find a cure for this cancer and while researchers work on that, it will provide money for patients fighting pancreatic cancer and support loved ones effected by the disease.
