"Pirates Against Pancreatic Cancer" is a group of people in Eastern North Carolina and beyond who have been affected by pancreatic cancer. Anyone who has lost a loved one to pancreatic cancer understands the impact this terrible disease has. Through this group, we hope to form a coalition of people all working to raise awareness and funds.
We hope to create a memorial to honor those we have lost and join together for those are currently in the fight.
Project Purple is a non-profit, impact driven organization which has a vision of a world without pancreatic cancer. Project Purple helps raise awareness, supports patients and families and funds research.
Our first team event will be in the Outer Banks for the Flying Pirate 5k on April 18th and the Half Marathon on April 19th, 2020.
We are looking for people to join us in the fight. Run or walk. Choose a distance or take on the double dare challenge. Encourage your friends and family to support this event and help us reach our goal.
A future goal of the group would be to organize our very own race or event!
We are looking for donations from friends, family or any businesses that may be able to help us reach and exceed our goal. We will be selling T-shirts as the race date gets closer.
Stay tuned for updates!
