Charlotte Gastroenterology & Hepatology had the pleasure of sponsoring and participating in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleStride Charlotte 2013 5K Run/Walk. The event was held at Marshall Park in uptown Charlotte on Saturday, September 7, 2013. CGH exceeded its fundraising goal of $2,500 and 20 team members by raising $3,610 with a total of 38 members. In addition to individual donations, CGH physicians and staff raised money with jeans day, a Brixx Pizza fundraiser, a penny war, and a raffle. We’re very proud of everyone’s efforts towards the $138,763 raised during PurpleStride 2013 to help fight this terrible disease.
