2014 5K Run/Walk To Fight Pancreatic Cancer At Hubbard Park, Meriden, CT.  Last year one of our ActiveRain members here in CT lost her husband Bill to Pancreatic Cancer.  Over the years I have come to know and meet Gail Robinson.  Gail is one of the nicest, and most courageous person I know.  The battle her and her husband Bill fought with Pancreatic Cancer over the last few years have been both an inspirational, and heartfelt one.  The end of that battle for Bill was not the one many of us here on ActiveRain had hoped and prayed for.  But even though Bill's fight with Pancreatic Cancer came to an end, it does not mean others can not carry on the battle to bring an end to this horrible and deadly disease.

While there are several Races and Walks for cancer going on in the area, this is the only one I have seen advertised for Pancreatic Cancers in the last couple of years.  All the efforts to raise money to try to cure this disease which rears its head in many horrible ways, are worth our contributions, volunteer work, and prayers.

I would encourage all who are reading this blog to pass on the word, and encourage those you know to contribute in the battle to put an end to cancer.  Whether the involvement is this Pancreatic Cancer 5K Walk/Run, or the many Races & Walks that are also being held on behave of Breast Cancer, get involved in one way or another.

This Saturday, June 21st is an opportunity to begin that involvement by participating in the 2014 5K Run/Walk To Fight Pancreatic Cancer At Hubbard Park, Meriden, CT.  Your efforts can go a long way in making this event to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer a success.  If you cannot be there, contact them at purplestride.org and make a financial contribution.

What a nice and thoughful post. This is all for a GREAT cause. When it touches home and the people we know, it's way too personal. AR members care about each other and their loved ones too.

George,thank you for pointing this out and encouraging people to participate in events like this.  Pancreatic cancer seems to be one of those that still claim the most lives
