Please come out to Tybee November 12th and join the Savannah Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for The PurpleStride 2011 event! This is the perfect event to bring the whole family, meet others, and create memories. There are great incentives for fundraising and all proceeds benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. Stride with others who are just as passionate about finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. Come enjoy a 5K run/walk and PurpleLight vigil to honor and remember loved ones, music, kids’ activities, refreshments, and much more!
Registration for this event is ongoing online at the group’s website. Fees are $25 for adults (or $30 day of event) and $10 for ages 3 through 15 ($15 on the day of event). Survivors, volunteers, and ages 2 and under are FREE!
The fun will be centered at the Pier and Pavilion here on Tybee, and registration opens at 2:00 pm the day of the event. Come on down and get registered! The 1/4 mile Kiddie Run begins at 3:00 pm, followed by the Adult 5 K Walk/Run at 3:30 pm. There will be a Closing Ceremony at 5:30 pm, so make sure you don’t miss a minute!
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!
