PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH WALK - Event Recap
Located at Magnuson Park; a 350-acre park on Sand Point, Lake Washington, in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The park is the second largest in Seattle! It is located on the spot of the former Naval Station Puget Sound. This park was perfect for a 5k! 2 laps around the course would complete the race.
It was great to see all of the vendors and a special surprise from Top Pot Donuts. They donated 20 box of white and purple sprinkled treats. The Foundation provided me with a stage and generator to keep me powered and keep the runners motivated to walk/run.
This event was tough for me having lost my mother to cancer last September. It was awesome seeing all of the survivors and hearing how the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is dedicated to cutting edge research and treatments to find a cure.
Special Guest Speaker Dr. Pillarisetty, who is a Surgical oncologist who specializes in pancreatic cancer surgery. He has been at the University of Washington and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) for 10 years and serves as the medical Director of Continuous Performance Improvement at the SCCA. He has a research Laboratory where he studies the body’s immune response to Pancreatic Cancer and is developing new strategies to activate it against the cancer.
With the magic of Facebook, I was able to ask for online donations and my awesome Fans and family raised $175 for the Foundation, and the 2019 Seattle Walk raised over $30,000!
Thank you to everyone that donated
