Affiliate Coordinator

“I feel strongly that it's my mission to be an advocate, a voice, because so many pancreatic cancer patients don't get the opportunity to do so. So many wonderful people have come into my life, whom I never would have met otherwise. It fills my heart with joy when new volunteers say ‘I want to become part of this group, and make a difference, like you are!’ Our affiliate has made an impact building awareness, fund raising, and equally important, creating a real community for survivors, families and friends.”

   - Maija, seven-year survivor and volunteer

PurpleStride Indianapolis 2012

Purplestride Indianapolis was a great success! The 5K and 1-mile run/walk took place at IUPUI Wood Fountain. The event had over 800 participants and raised more than $86,000. 

Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, and took a stride with us to help fight pancreatic cancer! 

PurpleLight Indianapolis 2013

Indianapolis went purple on October 27, 2013 for PurpleLight National Vigil for Hope. Family and friends of those touched by pancreatic cancer came together to gain both comfort and encouragement by illuminating purple glow sticks as they heard their loved ones’ names read aloud. Joined by nearly 20,000 participants in more than 80 communities across the country, this marked the largest participation in PurpleLight history and helped kick off National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Photos will be posted at www.purplelight.org when they are available.
