Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
PurpleStride is a family-friendly 5k run/walk event and is the signature event of the Birmingham Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. All of the proceeds from PurpleStride support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. When you Wage Hope at PurpleStride, you join a vibrant community of survivors, impacted families, loved ones, researchers and advocates committed to rewriting the future of this deadly disease.
The Sponsorship & Flagship Chair is a key member of the PurpleStride planning committee. This person (or committee of persons) will work to prospect and secure sponsors for PurpleStride. They will research potential sponsors, prepare and pitch sponsors, and manage sponsor relationships leading up to and through the event.
We are looking for an enthusiastic person who is willing to work with the rest of the PurpleStride planning committee to play a key role in the success of this event. Training and support will be provided to be successful in this role. This role can be done remotely leading up to event day. PurpleStride will take place in spring 2019 in the Birmingham area - exact date and location are TBD.
Purple ribbons don’t rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer. You do. Even if you don't have a personal connection to pancreatic cancer we welcome your involvement in helping us end the world's toughest cancer.
