Why we Pound the Pavement

Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and is the deadliest major cancer, with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent, according to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. In 2019, it is predicted that more than 55,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.


To date, Pound the Pavement has raised nearly $200,000
for pancreatic cancer research!
