3rd annual GIVEHOPE on the Square
June 21, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
The all-volunteer GIVEHOPE Pancreatic Cancer Research and Awareness team would like to invite your company to be a sponsor of the 3rd annual GIVEHOPE on the Square Event. Highlights of the event: Tracey Johnson of Fox19 morning show broadcasting live from Fountain Square, with co-emcee Council Member Laure Quinlivan, who lost her sister-in-law to pancreatic cancer. For a suggested donation of $5 you can sample food from Gold Star Chili, Rock Bottom Brewery, Palomino’s, Velvet Smoke, Donato’s, Jimmy John’s, Fantasy in Frosting, Orange Leaf and Patricia’s Custom Wedding Cakes. Premier Physical Therapy will be there to do injury assessments. We would also like to thank our other sponsors BSI Engineering and Ripple Junction.
The GIVEHOPE Fund was founded in 2010 to raise funds to benefit Pancreatic Cancer Research, Education, Prevention & Awareness Programs. The 5 year survival rate for pancreatic cancer currently is 6%, unchanged for 30 years. The fight against pancreatic cancer continues to be an uphill battle (in 2010 & 2011 the National Cancer institute spent 6 times more money on breast cancer research and 3 times more money on lung & colon cancer research) but progress is being made.
In the first year GIVEHOPE in conjunction with BSI Engineering awarded $21,100 to the UC Pancreas Disease Team for their research project “Alternatively Spliced Tissue Factor a Novel Biomarker” and our second grant of $30,000 will be awarded in the spring of 2013.
Please help us continue to support local cancer research at one of the nation’s first tier research hospitals. Local dollars, helping Local patients, at our Local research facility.
