A color run 5k in Bangor Sunday will help an organization that raises awareness of pancreatic cancer.

The Purple Iris Foundation is once again holding a 5k Color fun run/walk to raise money in support of anyone affected by pancreatic cancer. Founder Chris Parrish says all the proceeds from the event stay in Maine, so will benefit our friends and neighbors. That’s so rare these days. Parrish, a 9-year survivor of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, was given the Amanda Dempsey award at this past weekend’s Dempsey Challenge. The award is given to cancer survivors who work to support other cancer patients.

The color run will end with Purple powder being tossed onto the runners/walkers, but there will be stations throughout the course with colors that are representative¬†of other cancer awareness campaigns. It’s all about showing support for anyone whose life has been affected by cancer, and having some fun while doing it!

The un-timed event will run a course around the Bangor Waterfront, starting at 9:30 Sunday morning. And after the race, the fun continues with post-race refreshments, music from a DJ, fun activities, and a group picture.

Whether signing up as an individual or as part of a team, the best deal is to sign up early. Registrations will be accepted on race day, but the price will go up for anyone who waits til the last minute. Find more information and get signed up¬†through the Facebook event page for Pound the Pavement for Pancreatic Cancer. And, if you can’t make the race but still want to help out, there’s a website where you can be a virtual participant.
