PurpleStride DFW 2016
More patients die from pancreatic cancer than breast cancer, making pancreatic cancer the third-leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. And only 8 percent of patients live five years. To change the course of this disease, the Dallas-Fort Worth Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is inviting the community to attend PurpleStride DFW presented by Bell Nunnally & Martin LLP.
The volunteer-led community celebration will take place during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in Dallas, and will raise much needed awareness and funds to support the mission of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to advance research, support patients, and create hope. The event precedes World Pancreatic Cancer Day on Nov. 17, which is a global campaign bringing the world together in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
The family friendly 5K run and one-mile awareness walk will include:
- Registration at 6:30 a.m.; event begins at 7:30 a.m.
- Kid-friendly activities and “purple play zone”
- Opening ceremony and live entertainment
- Hosted by Ginger Allen, CBS 11’s Senior Investigative Reporter
