BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Cancer has affected each and everyone of us in one way or another. I am so excited to be a part of Team Project Purple to help bring awareness and raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer.
I will be running in the New York City Marathon on November 6th, 2016 and I am asking for your help. I want you to "TAKE A LEAP!" What does that mean? Take a photo of your best "Jump" and let's have some fun while raising funds for Project Purple. My goal is to raise $3500 for this amazing cause. Every donation is going towards pancreatic research, patient support, grants and scholarships to assist those whose lives have been touched by pancreatic cancer.
Did you know:
About 48,960 people (24,840 men and 24,120 women) will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer
About 40,560 people (20,710 men and 19,850 women) will die of pancreatic cancer
The lifetime risk of having pancreatic cancer is about 1 in 67
We can all help to beat Pancreatic Cancer! Thank you for your support!

The NYC Marathon experience is one of the best out there. From the challenge of 26.2 miles, to the millions of supporters shouting your name, to shutting down the streets of New York City: TCS NYC Marathon is an unforgetable, rewarding race. Of all the races we run each year, this is our biggest and most anticipated. Each Project Purple team has been larger and more successful than the last. Join this amazing team and let's keep growing, running, fundraising, and beating pancreatic cancer!
