"And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith." - Hebrews 12:1-2
Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for our 10th year by participating in PurpleStride Maryland 2017! Since our family has been participating in this event we have had the opportunity to watch not only the event grow but also awareness and funding for Pancreatic Cancer. Last year our team was the #2 highest fundrasing team raising over $13,000 for Pancreatic Cancer Research! And this year we know we can make the event BIGGER & BETTER!
With overwhelming donations last year, it is my challenge to our team to grow in size! I challenge each of you to invite 1 new person to the 2017 Purple Stride Maryland 5K! The number of people that have been affeccted by Pancreatic Cancer is too many. To end pancreatic cancer we must STEP UP. STAND TALL. & ACT BOLDLY.
By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
June 19th and 20th members of Nancy & Bonnie's Pac participated in Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. They came together with 700+ other advocates represented by all 50 states to tell our Congressmen and Representatives what we need from them to double survival by 2020. Bonnie got the opportunity to bravely share "Nancy & Bonnie's Pac" story on Capital Hill and so many of our loved ones participated in National Call Congress Day. But our teams job is not done!
Please join the team as we run/walk a fun 5k to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer! Even if you can't make it the morning of October 8, 2017 you can sign up as a "virtual strider" and do your own walk/5k wherever you are! (Be sure to send us your pictures of course!) Our family and friends are looking forward to Waging Hope with you!
