The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is looking for passionate, organized volunteers to lead the planning of our 5K fundraising event, PurpleStride, at Buffalo RiverWorks this September. This is an incredible opportunity to be the heartbeat of an event that brings hope, funding, and education to the pancreatic cancer community. In this leadership position, you would be supported by a staff member from the organization but empowered to own the event, be creative, and build a strong committee to help you with all of the planning aspects. There is robust training offered and it is a great project to add to any portfolio or resume.

Pancreatic cancer is currently the third leading cause of all cancer-related death in the United States - and impacts every state across the country. In order to rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer we need communities nationwide to join together and create a movement. This national movement needs your leadership and vision to continue to thrive and grow!

If you are interested in expanding your skills, building meaningful relationships and truly making a difference in this fight, please sign up today.
