BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
Hi friends! As some of you may already know, I will be running the Philadelphia Rock and Roll Half Marathon this September and I have decided to partner up with Project Purple to help fight against Pancreatic cancer. In 2015 and in the US alone, about 48, 960 people were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and about 80% died within a year. In fact, the 5 year survival rate is only 6% making it the lowest of all major cancers. Although It is currently number 4 of the deadlist cancers, it only receives about 5% of funds for cancer research which is why I decided to help raise some extra money directly for pancreatic cancer. This money will help with research, scholarships, and patient financial aid. Please consider donating as little or as much as you possibly can. Anything will help. Thank you so much!
