“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 Charlotte 2013

PurpleStride Charlotte 2013 was a huge success! We had more than 1,100 participants, 89 teams, and more than 100 volunteers join us on Saturday, September 7. Together we were able to raise $138,000 for the fight against pancreatic cancer.

We'd like to thank our sponsors and emcee, H.A. Thompson, for their support and dedication.
