How You Can Help

Step It Up Walk Registration

Time to Get Your Team & Huddle Up!

We're putting our Defense into Play!

Join us Sat. November 16, 2019

for our 10th Annual Step It Up! Event

Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary! This year's walk will have a football theme and we're ready to make a touchdown for pancreatic cancer research!

We've been preparing our playbook! Our fight song is ready! And now we need our "fans" to cheer us to victory!  As our "fans" we encourage you to come wearing your favorite football team (college or professional) apparel - no cleats, though! And shoulder pads aren't necessary, even though pretty cool, but it's a friendly event and there won't be any tackling!

It's an indoor 5K - we're not letting the weather stop us from raising money to support pancreatic cancer research.
