BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running the NYC Marathon for my wonderful Mum who lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer on the 18th February 2016. She was my inspiration, best friend, teacher and love of my life. I will remember her in these 26 miles, each one representing a year we spent together.
Please donate to this worthwhile cause. One day we can beat this disease and save millions of families from the heartbreak and loss of losing a loved one.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the top five common causes of cancer death in the UK and USA, just 1% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer survive their disease for ten years or more and only 21% survive their disease for one year or more. Incredibly less than 1.5% of cancer research funding is directed towards pancreatic cancer.
Help me make a difference.
