Project Purple is the official charity of the Lincoln Marathon that will be held on May 3, 2015. This is a non-profit organization with a goal to raise awareness and funding towards a cure for pancreatic cancer.
I am as excited as honored to be running with their team this year. This is very personal to me, as I lost my grandmother 2 years ago to pancreatic cancer. I run to honor her. My grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer and she fought this disease the same way she lived her life, on her terms and not letting the diagnosis define her. She pursued trial treatments so that she could due her part in learning more about this disease and to be a voice for those who couldn’t.
She continued to live her wonderful for life for 5 years doing the things that she loved and spending time with those who loved her. She was a true inspiration!
I have a goal to personally raise $250 and I have no doubt with the support of my family and friends that I can reach this goal. I hope that you will consider donating to this incredible organization.
