Mike's Purple Alliance will once again participate in the PurpleRideStride on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove, MN. Mike was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer in March 2016. He showed amazing strength and courage through his 20 month journey through treatment and gave us time to make many wonderful memories. This year we will also be honoring him with a memorial park bench and bike tool station near the PurpleRideStride area. We loved to bike together in the park and he always carried his bike tools with him to help anyone along the trail that needed a hand. The kids and I thought this would be a good way to remember him.
Please join us and come out to Elm Creek Park in Maple Grove, MN on Sept. 14, 2019 to ride, run or walk with us to raise funds to help find new treatments and early detection methods for pancreatic cancer. You can also join us as a virtual participant and do your walking or riding where you are or find a Purple Stride event in your state and participate! By supporting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, you will help give families hope who are facing this devastating diagnosis.
