SAN DIEGO - PurpleStride is one of the largest sources of funding for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. 

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer, one stride at a time. 

San Diego's PurpleStride 5K Run/Walk is taking place on Sunday, October 7 at De Anza Cove in Mission Bay Park.

Opening ceremonies start at 7:30 a.m. and the run/walk kicks off at 8 a.m. 

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 five-year survival rate has increased three percentage points since 2014 and is now 9 percent.

Those three percentage points represent approximately 1,600 mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, sisters, brothers, colleagues and friends.
