Bracelet created by: Elli Zadina
$2 from every Project Purple – Team Lincoln Marathon KonectIDY bracelet will go towards our team fundraising goal of $50,000. Project Purple offers a Scholarship Program providing grants to children and grandchildren who have lost a loved one to pancreatic cancer to continue their education. Second they have a Patient Financial Aid Program that helps families pay the daily bills like mortgage, rent, and utilities due to a financial hardship caused by pancreatic cancer. Lastly they fund research towards discovering early detection and finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. Just this week, Project Purple granted $150,000 to the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s pancreatic cancer research team. Dr. Hollingsworth and the researchers there are diligently working on exciting new studies. It gives me hope that one day we will hear the words “we found a cure.”
Please buy a bracelet for yourself, for your family, and for your friends. Show your support of the runners on Team Lincoln Marathon, for pancreatic cancer patients around the world, for their families, for researchers, and for Project Purple whose mission is “running to beat pancreatic cancer.” THANK YOU!
