THE STORY:

Hello Friends:

I will be running the Boston Marathon this April on behalf of Project Purple. I am helping this charity raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer research.  

I decided to run for Project Purple because I felt connected to their cause and the work they do to help fight this disease. 

One of my family members has currently been battling Pancreatic Cancer, and one of my best friend's father passed away from it.  I witnessed first hand the effects it has had on both of them, as well as our families and friends.    

Running 26.2 miles is nothing compared to journey that they have had to endure. 

Project Purple is 501(c)(3) not for profit organization with a mission of raising awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer.  Sadly the statistics are staggering. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancer killers and the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer on the top 10 list with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.

Please help support my Project Purple Boston Marathon Team as we raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.  My goal is to raise $7,500 and try to run under 3 hours.  I will be updating this page and my facebook page to show my fundraising and training progress.  Any support is greatly appreciated.  

Thanks 

John
