The PurpleStride Story

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 USA, as well as Japan, 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 2018. But the true impact of our work together is measured in progress, not dollars. Since 2008, we’ve achieved a 3% increase in pancreatic cancer survival and have inspired more than one million people across the USA and Japan 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.

※Survivor Story -  Michele Steel
In February 2016, Michele was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer and was initially told that surgery was not possible. However, she refused to give up. She wanted to try the most innovative conversion surgery available for surgical resection of her tumor, so she opted for gemcitabine+nabPaclitaxel chemotherapy. After receiving that treatment for almost a year, her tumor shrank to the point where she was able to have the conversion surgery.
