Make exercise count on Nov. 8

Each year, more than 42,000 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. More than 35,000 of those diagnosed are not able to beat it.

The Manhattan affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is kick-starting National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month by hosting a 1-,2-, and 3-mile walk on Sunday, November 8, on the Upper West Side.

PurpleStride Manhattan takes place at 10:00 AM on 83rd Street and Riverside Drive and includes music, childrens’ activities, beverages and healthy snacks. There is no cost to enter the walk, but participants are encouraged to fundraise.

Join PanCAN, FF and thousands of other New Yorkers and walk for a good cause. Register to walk here
