The Denise D’Ascenzo Walk

The Denise D’Ascenzo Walk

Event date: April 27, 2024

We are thrilled to announce that on April 27, 2024, Project Purple will be participating in the Denise D’Ascenzo Foundation’s Walk to Fight Rare Diseases. This event is a remarkable opportunity for our community to come together and make a difference in the lives of those affected by rare diseases.

This is a great 1 or 2-mile walk for the whole family to get involved in where you can walk side by side with others affected by rare diseases in Connecticut – and you can do it in support of our mission of a world without pancreatic cancer.

We warmly invite you to join us by signing up to walk with our team in person. Your participation will not only show solidarity with our cause but will also contribute significantly to raising awareness and funds for the fight against rare diseases. To register and walk alongside us, simply click “Walk for Project Purple” during the registration process.
