PurpleStride Jacksonville is a family-friendly 5k run/walk event and is the signature event of the Jacksonville Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. All of the proceeds from PurpleStride Jacksonville 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 Event Experience Chair is a key member of the PurpleStride planning committee. This person (or committee of persons) will work to make sure participants have a great event day experience. They will plan and execute top team and individual event-day recognition, food and beverage, the opening and closing ceremonies, Purple Play Zone, photographers and photo area, and overall event experience.
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 Jacksonville will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the University of North Florida.
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.

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the only national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure. The organization raises money for direct private funding of research--and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network fills the void of information and options by giving patients and caregivers reliable, personalized information they need to make informed decisions. We create a sense of hope and community so no one has to face pancreatic cancer alone. The organization helps support individuals and communities all across the country work together to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
