ABOUT THE EVENT
On July 4, 1970, 110 runners began a tradition that would transform Atlanta and road racing across the country. As they ran down Peachtree St. on that hot summer day, little did they know they were beginning a race that would grow into the world’s largest 10K.
“It was such an awesome experience for our whole family to be given the opportunity to participate in such a great and meaningful Walk!”
“I am so happy that decided to do this. This weekend was so amazing, seeing all those people come together for this cause was just amazing.”
WHY US? BECAUSE EARLY DIAGNOSIS IS KEY
91% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis. There is currently no detection test. If patients are diagnosed in time for surgery, their chance of surviving meaningfully increases. A key approach is to foster a marker to help diagnose the disease earlier.
Together with You our Mission is to promote awareness, increase education, and further pancreatic cancer research aimed at early diagnosis.
What we provide for those who have Pancreatic Cancer today: Free access to the world’s top medical resource. Help in optimizing personal treatment strategies to live longer. This is a massive undertaking supported entirely by your tax-free donations.
What we provide for Pancreatic Cancer patients of the future: Currently, no standard marker exists to diagnose the disease in early stages. Our aim is to support the development of a marker for early diagnosis. If the disease is found even a year earlier, outcomes will begin to improve.
