Please join us in participating (purple JOIN TEAM button) or donating (purple DONATE NOW button) in support of us in the 15th annual Step-N-Out 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser on Sunday, November 1st in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Your participation and/or donation helps thousands battling this disease and advance TGen's efforts to develop new treatment therapies and just as important early detection programs.
This year due to the Covid-19 pandemic still affecting our country, many of you in the Phoenix area, as well as those of you outside of the area, we are improving on our "Virtual 5K" participation option. We are striving to make this a better experience which you will be able to wear your official T-shirt and can complete your own 5K run/walk as a full-fledged member of Team Olsen! I am encouraging everyone to register for this option. The 5K will help us all shed some of those Covid-19 pounds!
Unfortunately pancreatic cancer is now the third leading cause of cancer death taking the lives of over 49,000 Americans this year. Progress is being made, but we desparately need more. Through TGen's efforts 1-year and 2-year survival rates have increased but are still low compared to other cancers. Early detection is critical as longer term survival is being achieved when detected early.
Please consider making a gift to support our participation by clicking the purple Donate Now button. No matter how small or large, your generous donation helps us advance a step forward in the search for a cure. Thank you for supporting this great cause in my mom's honor!
