Photos from Purple Stride 2016

PurpleStride is the signature event of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Each year, in communities across the country, tens of thousands of people participate in more than fifty-six PurpleStride events, including PurpleStride Raleigh-Durham. These events are critical in raising awareness and funds that advance research and support patients and loved ones with a promise of a better tomorrow.  This year the Raleigh-Durham Purple Stride raised $216,461 to support the fight against pancreatic cancer!

Dr. Kirsten Bryant of the Der Lab was the top individual fundraiser this year with $6,795 in memory of her father, read her amazing story here.  Team UNC raised the second most of any team at the event, with $11,630 across 51 team members.  Dr. Der and Dr. Bryant were honorary co-chairs of the event this year, as a testament to their amazing work in the fight against pancreatic cancer.  Everyone had a great time running to support this amazing cause as you can see from the photos below.
