BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

Project Purple's mission: to beat pancreatic cancer. Our Method: participating in the best road races in the world. For the past three years, Project Purple has been a proud charity partner of the John Hancock Program. We're excited to once again participate in the Boston Marathon - on of the most fantastic running events in the world! We are the soul pancreatic cancer charity running in Boston in 2016. Each of our runners has been touched by this terrible disease, 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.
