Fight Pancreatic Cancer in Austin: Corporate Sponsorship Recruiter

Save to Favorites


Pancreatic cancer is currently the third leading cause of all cancer-related death in the United States - and impacts every state across the country.

This national movement needs your leadership and vision to continue to thrive and grow!

We are looking for passionate, organized volunteers to recruit additional corporate sponsors for the annual 5K run/walk fundraising event, PurpleStride Austin. This is an incredible opportunity to be the heartbeat of an event that brings hope, funding, and education to the pancreatic cancer community. There is robust training offered and it is a great project to add to any portfolio or resume.

Mission Statement

Of the major cancers, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate. In 2010, our organization declared a bold and aggressive vision: After seeing too little progress in pancreatic cancer survival in over half a century, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network put a stake in the ground to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. Today we are aiming to raise $200 million by 2020, which will ensure that we continue to accelerate progress.


Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the global leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer with a bold and comprehensive approach to Wage Hope through research, patient services, advocacy and community action. Our urgent mission is to improve outcomes for patients battling the disease today and double patient survival by 2020.
