5K a Day in May


I originally came up with the idea of doing a 5k a day in May last year to celebrate my 40th birthday in July. I decided to do this again this year to commemorate the 15 year anniversary of losing my aunt Cassie to pancreatic cancer at just 58 years old. I have been doggedly committed to continuing the fight from where my aunt left off and putting my healthy and capable body to use to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer. For the entire month of May I will be running or walking a 5k every day of the month, including this walk on 5/18. Each day I will be dedicating my 5k runs and walks to those who have fought or are currently fighting pancreatic cancer. I would appreciate your support, no donation is too small and if there is someone you would like me to run/walk for please reach out so I can dedicate a 5k to your loved one.


I am participating in Lustgarten's Walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research to celebrate the progress that has been made and to power tomorrow's research. Please support my goal as I embrace Lustgarten's vision of transforming pancreatic cancer into a curable disease. Donate to my page and provide hope to thousands of families touched by this devastating disease.

Why Lustgarten? They are the nation’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to separate funding of administrative expenses, 100% of my fundraising and your donation funds pancreatic cancer research - research led by Lustgarten and powered by you! Together, we will raise more money for research advancements than I ever could alone.

Your contribution will help me achieve my goal so that more funding can be allocated for research into early detection and new treatments. Please share this page with any friends you think might be interested in donating, and join me on this journey towards a cure.

In Honor Of Gary Oberle, Age 44

Thank you for raising awareness. My father passed away age 44 on 5:29/99 (25 years ago today!) I came across your page today and it made me so happy to see someone talking about pancreatic cancer awareness. I was young when he passed but continued to do my research. Then in 2012, his father (and my grandfather) also passed away of pancreatic cancer at age 86. I soon after enrolled in a clinical blood trial to help identify markers for early detection and learned that insurance would pay for a screening protocol (every year I alternate between an MRI of the pancreas and an EUS of the pancreas.) All of my siblings do the same as well. Thank you for all that you do!
