PurpleStride is Back!

PurpleStride is back and better than ever! This year, our event will take place on Saturday, 04/04/2020, and will take participants on a lovely route at Railroad Park West Green.

Register now and join us for a day filled with hope and inspiration to raise funds, awareness and support for pancreatic cancer! Register here.

We stride to make sure that other people have a chance, because a five year survival rate of 9 percent is unacceptable and because it's what "Papa Z" would have done.
