Hi, thanks for visiting our team page. I formed TEAM GRANDPA FRANK in memory of my 92 year old father, Frank Havlak, who passed away June 14, 2016, 10 months after diagnosis and surgery for pancreatic cancer. He left behind 5 children, 13 grandchildren and numerous in-laws and friends. He is missed daily.
I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride Maryland which is a 5K run (or walk) taking place October 8, 2017, the morning of my daughter Jessica's wedding in Maryland. We will have many extended family members attending her wedding that weekend, and I thought this would be a great event to commemorate her grandfather, who couldn't attend because of this dreadful disease.
By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
Go to Pancan.org for more information. It's a great organization which funds patient and family resources and research.
Please make a donation today for TEAM GRANDPA FRANK and help us to reach our fundraising goal! Or support one of the other team members, it's all good and great.
