Purplestride Philadelphia 2017


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.

Butcher & Singer

Butcher and Singer is not your ordinary run-of-the-mill steakhouse. An homage to old Hollywood, low lights and dark woods evoke a feeling reminiscent of a bygone era when women donned full red lips, men wore a suit and tie and post-Prohibition liquor flowed freely. The menu includes an array of perfectly charred steaks and chops, coldwater lobster and iconic dishes like Shrimp & Crab Louie. Paired with a Perfect Manhattan and personalized service and you are sure to feel like a celebrity.
