Every year, Team Boychik joins thousands of others participants in Fairmount Park to take part in PurpleStride Philadelphia. PurpleStride is a 5K walk/timed-run — one of over fifty PurpleStride events nationwide.
PurpleStride events raise awareness about the critical mission of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN). The events contribute millions of dollars toward our mission to advance research, support patients and create hope. Funds raised help provide personalized support for patients and support research grants and advocacy efforts to increase federal pancreatic cancer research funding.
For our team and other participants, it is a journey toward hope that is filled with inspiration. It is a time to honor loved ones fighting pancreatic cancer and remember those we have lost. It is a day when all of the family and friends of pancreatic cancer patients can come together in solidarity and gain both comfort and encouragement.
