Team Grateful







Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

Dear Family & Friends:

It's that time again and I'll be celebrating my 3rd anniversary of being cancer free I'd like to BEG you to join me once again or lend your support for the annual pancreatic cancer walk/run.     

This year the walk will take place on Sunday, November 11, 2018.  

For those that are joining us for the first time here's some info about how it all began.  February 2015, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent eight hours of surgery on July 10th and a seven day hospital stay at Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick.  By the grace of God the surgery was a success and no chemotherapy or radiation were required; I can't begin to explain my humbleness and gratitude to the Creator!  With that being said, my ride or die husband Wajid and I participated in my first Purple Stride New Jersey 5K run & walk in November 2015 because I wanted to share that gratitude, be encouragement or support for someone else and give to this cause which doesn't discriminate against anyone! 

This year my desire is to increase my support, so Team Grateful is asking for a donation toward a $2000.00 fundraising goal to further support, research, awareness and a cure for pancreatic cancer.  Last year Team Grateful actually raised over $3000!  

You can join Team Grateful with a donation of $25.00 or more, this amount will allow you to walk/run on that day.  If you choose not to walk/run a $5.00 minimum donation or more can still be made to Team Grateful.                            

1) To participate with fundraising you MUST REGISTER with Team Grateful at: or call: 877-272-6226. (calling may be less taxing :))

2) On the website type in the team name or if calling, state the team name or credit won't be given to our team or fundraising goal. 

3) When you visit the website you'll see my name (Barbara Abdur-Razzaq) listed as Team Captain, select the donate now box and you will be directed to the Donate page where you will select Enter Amount or type in your fundraising amount.          


Please feel free to share this invitation with anyone you desire; the more the greater the Team and my gratitude!         


PurpleStride/WAGE HOPE comes under the umbrella of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network which was founded in 1999, it is a nationwide network. PurpleStride New Jersey is back! 

Once again, the 5K Run & Family Friendly Walk will take place on Sunday, November 11, 2018, and will take participants on a lovely route at the Mack Cali Business Campus in Parsippany.  

Hopefully, you can join us for a day filled with hope and inspiration to raise funds, awareness and support for pancreatic cancer!
Thanking you in advance for your support and participation!

Love & blessings,
