Selected as a charity partner for the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon (Sunday, October 27, 2019 in Washington, DC), we are looking for a group of people to run in the name of finding a cure, in memory/in honor of a loved one, or supporting an organization that provides hope and courage to those suffering from pancreatic disease. In return, the NPF will support you every step of the way with motivation, team support (via a private Facebook group), swag, team tent at the finish line, and a team pasta dinner the night before. In 2018, our 44 runners raised $36,686 all in the name of finding a cure for pancreas disease!
