Race Charity – Project Purple

A limited number of registrations are available to those who wish to fundraise for Project Purple. Apply directly with Project Purple for a spot on their team.

The Lincoln Marathon has chosen Project Purple as its designated charity to honor Jayne Snyder, a former Lincoln Track Club board member and Lincoln City Council member, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in 2011. Pancreatic cancer accounts for approximately 3% of all cancers in the U.S. and 7% of cancer deaths. Project Purple is “running to beat pancreatic cancer” and recently committed $150,000 in grant support to the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center. Specialists at UNMC are national leaders in innovative pancreatic cancer research.
