PurpleStride Iowa 2018

  • Overview

    When you Wage Hope at PurpleStride Iowa 2018 Presented by Strategic America, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, you join a vibrant community of survivors, impacted families, loved ones, researchers and advocates committed to rewriting the future of this deadly disease. Your fundraising and participation directly funds efforts to help patients and families.

    Since the first walk in 2008, PurpleStride has been the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s most powerful vehicle for fundraising and awareness. Each year, in more than 50 PurpleStride events across the country, survivors, families, researchers, caregivers and others touched by pancreatic cancer come together to rewrite the future of this deadly disease.

    Together, we’ve raised more than $87 million for pancreatic cancer research and patient services through community events from 2008 to 2016. But the true impact of our work together is measured in progress, not dollars. The five-year survival rate has increased by three percentage points since 2014 and is now 9 percent. We have inspired more than 1 million people across the country to take action in the fight against pancreatic cancer. With each PurpleStride we continue moving the needle for patients battling this devastating disease.

    Purple ribbons don’t rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer. You do. Come out and stride with us!
