Project Purple’s mission is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and improve the lives of patients through support, hope, and compassion. Funds donated to Project Purple support 2 programs- patient financial aid for patients battling and research toward early detection. Pancreatic cancer patients need help now more than ever. As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, it is becoming increasingly challenging for Project Purple to support these patients in need. Over 80% of our donations typically come from endurance events– the funds raised from this virtual event will help Project Purple give patients the critical support they need to focus on their fight against pancreatic cancer.
The National MS Society exists because nearly one million people in the United States live with multiple sclerosis. We bring together the world’s resources to find treatments, solutions and cures: to stop progression and manage symptoms, restore what has been lost and to end MS forever. For the safety of the MS community and all our communities—we have stopped gathering in person for now but have created virtual connection opportunities to minimize feelings of isolation and anxiety. Our world may look different today, but our commitment to changing the lives of people affected by MS remains unchanged. MS doesn’t stop, and neither will we.
