PurpleStride walks are among the largest sources of funding for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s event coordinators scheduled all kinds of fun events so PurpleStride Los Angeles would be more than a 5K walk.

1. Shop till You Drop

Let people know you are a part of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) purple army by getting your favorite goods at the Shop Purple tent. There will be loads of fun and stylish swag available for purchase. It is a great way to snag that tee you’ve always wanted, while avoiding the shipping and extra charges when you order online.

2. Be a VIP for the Day

PurpleStride is PanCAN’s walk to end pancreatic cancer.

From food to games, PurpleStride Los Angeles will have all the signature event bells and whistles (even the purple carpet).

The purple carpet will be rolled out for all participants and teams. Come by for a premiere photo-op in front of the Step-and-Repeat area.

3. Pants Off Racing

It sounds suspicious, but this is a G-rated event tent. Play your hand at cornhole and other fun games before and after the race.

4. Fun for Kids

The Purple Play Zone is an event space made with children in mind. There are two inflatable bouncers as well as a Cinco de Mayo-themed craft center.

5. Keep Calm and Enjoy Food Trucks

The average person walking or running the 5k will burn around 300 calories. Head over to the food trucks to get some tasty bites and carb load for the big walk. All kinds of eats and drinks will be available for purchase.

6. Leave Your Mark

Before you start moving your legs, get your blood pumping by decorating the City of Hope and PanCAN Collaboration Art Wall. It’s your chance to leave your mark on PurpleStride LA 2018 about why you’re participating, while also flexing your art muscles.
