Roll & Stroll to support pancreas cancer research Aug. 12
MIDDLETON, Wis. – Friends and family will join to support pancreatic cancer research efforts of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center on Sunday, Aug. 12 at Capital Brewery, Middleton.
Participants can choose from a 50K or 10K bike ride or 2-mile accessible stroll. The event also includes food, raffle, games and live entertainment from the Chuck Lorenzo Band and the Randolph Star Band. Bucky Badger will make an appearance. All participants will receive a complimentary beverage from Capital Brewery.
Pre-event registration available: https://www.classy.org/event/roll-and-stroll-for-pancreas-cancer-2018/e172223. Day-of registration and check-in begins at 8 a.m., with the 50K starting at 9:30 a.m., the 10K and two-mile stroll starting at 10:30 a.m. and the post-event celebration starting at 11:30 a.m.
Pancreas cancer kills more people in Wisconsin every year than either breast or prostate cancer, even though it is less common, and an estimated 73 percent of patients die within a year of diagnosis.
“It’s imperative that we raise needed dollars to advance cancer research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center,” said Gerianne Holzman, co-organizer of the event and member of the UW’s Pancreas Cancer Task Force. “Too many individuals die of this cancer every year, and we must invest in local cancer research now more than ever.”
