‘Passionate for Purple’ Event Raises Funds for Purple Stride 5K

On Wednesday, May 30, 2012, supporters gathered at Town Hall in Georgetown to support the Medstar Georgetown PurpleStride 5K team. The event featured exclusive food and beverage specials, a silent auction and raffle that raised $2,000 for the cause.

The walk, which will take place on Saturday, June 16, 2012, is hosted by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN), a long-time supporter and partner of the Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancers, part of Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
