If running could help cure pancreatic cancer, would you do it? If you said yes, please join Bronsky Orthodontics as we participate in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleStride New York City 5K again this year.
This family-friendly run/walk will be held April 11 at 10 a.m. in Prospect Park – Nethermead East in Brooklyn. Runners can participate as a team or individually, and in either timed or untimed events.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth deadliest cancer in the United States and is predicted to become the second deadliest by 2020, according to the American Cancer Society.
Unfortunately, a mere two percent of the National Cancer Institute’s budget is allocated to pancreatic cancer research support.
Proceeds from PurpleStride will help support research advancement, patient support and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
This cause hits especially close to home for Dr. Mark Bronsky, whose father lost his battle to pancreatic cancer.
“We run to remember lost loved ones, and to further research that will eventually lead to a cure,” says Dr. Bronsky, a New York City orthodontics provider. “We have a great time supporting a worthy cause every year at PurpleStride, and would love to have as many patients, friends and family join us as possible.”
