Fertility Preservation Network Sponsors Fall Cancer Fundraising Events
ReproTech, Ltd., was proud to sponsor PANCAN's Savannah, Georgia PurpleStride 5K, held on beautiful Tybee Island on November 12. ReproTech's Fertility Preservation Network Manager, Joy Bader, and her husband, Bill, a seven year pancreatic cancer survivor, participated in the event with family and friends. ReproTech also sponsored its St. Paul, MN office Site Director, Jill Olson, who participated in PANCAN’s PurpleRide Twin Cities on September 18. Jill’s team, The Dollies & Rock-n-Janes’, whose members biked 25 miles in memory of parents and grandparents who lost their battles with pancreatic cancer, raised over $4,200.00 for PANCAN, with the total amount of donations for the event surpassing $290,000.00.
ReproTech regularly sponsors or contributes funds to cancer fundraising events in the areas where its employees and three regional facilities reside, Ft. Lauderdale/Coconut Creek, Florida; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota; and Reno, Nevada. Previous cancer fundraising events sponsored by ReproTech, Ltd. include various Susan G. Komen for the Cure events, Lance Armstrong Foundation events and other local events benefitting cancer survivors and research.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure. The organization raises money for direct private funding of research—and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
