While I think many of us still remain in a constant state of disbelief & sadness, we have an upcoming opportunity to honor Michele while supporting an amazing organization, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCan).
PanCan will be hosting their annual Purple Stride 5K Walk / Run in Dallas on November 8th at Klyde Warren Park.
There are lots of ways to get involved no matter where you live, so here’s what you can do…
1) Join us for the race on Nov. 8th in Dallas and sign up for Team Michele. We want to have as many people as possible on our team come race day. We will have t-shirts and extra flare for Michele – she wouldn’t have it any other way. Karen Green is leading the organizing charge.
To join Team Michele and to register for the race, please go here: http://shar.es/1aVl5N
Click “Join Team”
2) Donate to Team Michele. If you are unable to make it to the race on Nov. 8th, but would still like to contribute, you can make a donation in Michele’s honor to Team Michele here: http://shar.es/1aVl5N

3) Promote & Sponsor. Share the event on social media, email to friends, and help spread the word.
PanCan needs as many sponsors as possible. Pancreatic Cancer remains one of the most underfunded cancers out there. Not to mention it is projected to be the number one cancer killer by 2020 if we don’t find a cure, and fast. If you or your company are interested in race sponsorship opportunities, please let us know. Email me at zachweismann[at]gmail.com
4) Join in across the country. PanCan is hosting Purple Stride races across the country. Here’s a list of upcoming events that we hope to have people participating in to honor Mom:
Bay Area, California – November 8th
Los Angeles – November 15th
New Jersey – November 9th
Houston, November 1st
San Antonio, November 15th

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to having you join us in Dallas on Nov. 8th.
