Adelaide boosts its support for Pancreatic Cancer

Sunday, 13 December 2015 Posted in Past Events, 2015

The fourth annual Adelaide walk was held on a beautiful spring morning at Grange Jetty Reserve. It was the first of a number of events for the Foundation held in November, which is internationally recognised as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. Many dressed up in some very creative outfits in purple, the colour of the disease, and it was a beautiful sight seeing the stream of purple-dressed people along the esplanade and Henley Beach.

Thanks to each and every one of the 283 people registered for the event and helped to raise in excess of $18,000 so far which is over $5,000 more than last year! We are thankful for the generous support of the community. You are what makes hope possible!
