CRAB Treads with PurpleStride Puget Sound 2016
On Sunday, October 30, 2016, employees, colleagues, family and friends of Cancer Research And Biostatistics (CRAB) unite for the fourth consecutive year to support awareness and research for pancreatic cancer. CRABCares, the CRAB public-outreach committee, will participate in the 2016 PurpleStride Puget Sound event at Magnuson Park in Seattle. CRAB staff, along with friends and family members, will show support for the larger Seattle community of survivors, researchers and awareness activists as they stride in this 5K fun-run/walk, to share stories, smiles and conversation.
Each year, in communities across the US, tens of thousands of people participate in more than 56 PurpleStride events. These events are critical in raising awareness and funds that advance research and support patients and loved ones with a promise of a better tomorrow. One of CRAB's key research partnerships, the Pancreatic Cancer Research Team (PCRT), has member-sites across the US that participate in PurpleStride events throughout each year.
John Crowley, co-Founder and Chief of Strategic Alliances at CRAB, has pledged to support PurpleStride Puget Sound this year: "CRAB is proud to stride with PanCAN in support of our shared mission to help conquer pancreatic cancer. This effort is very important to me, personally and professionally. Therefore, I have pledged to match every dollar raised by the CRABCares team for PanCAN through this event with a dollar to CRAB in support of the PCRT."
