Live Like a Local: PurpleStride Savannah 2010

     Please come out to Tybee November 6th (this Saturday!!) and join the Savannah Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for The PurpleStride 2010 event! This 5K Walk/Run and 1/4 mile Kiddie Run is one of the first events planned for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and will be a one-of-a-kind “twilight” PurpleStride, so bring the whole family. There will be musical entertainment as well as snacks and light refreshments for all to enjoy!

     The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, in their own words, “is the only national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach, and advocacy for a cure.” You can read more about the group and their efforts at their website, just click the link above. You can also learn more about pancreatic cancer and how you can help there as well!
     This is a fun way to raise money for a great cause…not to mention a wonderful excuse to come to the beach! We hope to see you there!
