I never appreciated the beauty of the color purple until I saw masses of purple T-Shirts and purple and white balloons in downtown Washington this past Saturday. The occasion was the Pancreatic Cancer Purple Stride 5k Walk & Festival. You can go to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network or Shirley’s Angel Foundation to find out more about the event.
Meanwhile enjoy the beauty of purple.

In an earlier post we talked about a local organization Shirley’s Angel Foundation (SAF) and the work that it is doing in the community. See the earlier post. SAF is the leading provider of research and education to decrease the incidence and mortality of Pancreatic Cancer in the African-American community.
This weekend SAF is participating in the PANCAN Purple Strides 5k Walk in Washington, DC. The event takes place Saturday June 18 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Fee: Adult $30, Youth age 3-12 $10, Virtual Participant $35, Survivor Free
Join the team! Even if it is too late to walk or you have other plans for Saturday, your donation can walk and help advance research, support patients and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. Click here for more info and to donate.
