Saturday, October 21, 2017

Join 250 of your fellow runners and walkers in providing HOPE AND A PLAN to all pancreatic cancer patients. Spend a beautiful October morning moving along the peaceful trails (no busy road routes!) of the Chattahoochee River at Gerrard Landing Park in Alpharetta, GA. We’re going to celebrate life, while helping the physicians and researchers give more days to those who need it. Bring your friends and family. Children are welcome, too!

Proceeds from Purple Parade will fund research and clinical trials, as well as provide critical support to patients and their families. Gifts are deductible per IRS regulations.

Dear runners, sponsors, healthcare providers and friends,

I am Victoria and Destroy Pancreatic Cancer’s founder John Couvillon is my dad. Shortly after he passed away, I decided that I wanted to continue my papa’s work of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. I came to the conclusion that the most fun and efficient way to raise money for this cause would be to have a fun run. That is how the idea of Purple Parade came to be.

I believe that no child, wife or husband, mother or father, brother or sister, or any loved one should have to lose someone to this horrible disease. Until we work together and take a stand, very few advances will be made in curing this “death sentence.” Please join us in my papa’s mission to destroy pancreatic cancer! I look forward to seeing you on race day!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support,

Pancreatic cancer is everyone’s fight. 


For those who achieve remission from pancreatic cancer, that’s exactly how they live. Every 90 days, they boldly stare down fear as they walk into the hospital for routine scans.

There’s nothing comforting about having a disease with survival rates moving in the wrong direction. Just this year, pancreatic cancer became the third leading cause of all cancer deaths, and it’s expected to move to the second leading cause by 2020.

For those of us surviving this cancer, we stand for those who didn’t. We refuse to accept that anyone must live life just 90 days at a time. We will destroy pancreatic cancer. Will you join us at Purple Parade?


Our mission is simple—To destroy pancreatic cancer.
Our promise is guaranteed—To fund and advance research that leads to earlier detection and improved treatment options.
Our goal is within reach—To establish Hope and a Plan for all pancreatic cancer patients. The hope comes from the research and clinical trials performed under a true collaborative model. The plan supports today's patients in quickly developing a strategy to win the battle against pancreatic cancer.
