Purple Ride Twin Cities-Spetember 15th

PurpleRide events provide an opportunity for participants to join the fight against pancreatic cancer while enjoying a day of bike riding, entertainment, food and inspiration.

PurpleRide participants raise money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s mission to

  • Advance research
  • Support patients
  • Create hope for the pancreatic cancer community
For participants, it is a journey toward hope that is filled with inspiration. It is a time to honor loved ones fighting pancreatic cancer. It is a day when all of the family and friends of pancreatic cancer patients can come together in solidarity and gain both comfort and encouragement.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and the eighth worldwide.

 The signs and symptoms that eventually lead to the diagnosis depend on the location, the size, and the tissue type of the tumor, and may include abdominal pain, lower back pain, and jaundice.
