For many, death is the end of the story, but for Team Alex it was just the beginning. Our Team was formed in honor of our amazing friend Alex Salib, who battled pancreatic cancer like a warrior until his passing on July 19, 2013; two days after his 30th birthday. Alex was an incredibly positive force and his influence inspired us to join the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. It's been our way to carry on his legacy and make sure his life will forever change our world.
Since 2014, we have been running to raise money for Project Purple, an organization built upon the same drive that we have embraced. They are committed to funding research projects aimed at finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. They have also worked towards the advancement of Pancreatic Cancer awareness. Cancer related donations are tremendous and yet Pancreatic Cancer research remains completely underfunded. Our team is committed to running 26.2 miles across all five boroughs of NYC to change that.
This year our team consists of Allison Shaughnessy, Colleen Bulger, Michael Pennisi, Adam Guisti, Michael Estreicher, Jessica Estreicher, Tracy Freeman, Watt White, Pamela Loria, Christopher Pennisi and Ben Garrison. Together we are looking to raise enough money to sponsor a research team and hopefully rid the world of this deadly form of cancer.
We sincerely appreciate any help you can provide towards our cause. Every penny is one step closer to saving lives.
- Team Alex
