Our mission is to end pancreatic cancer.
Beginning in 2009 after the passing of our namesake, Polly, our goal at Polly’s Run has been to raise awareness of this terrible disease and money for research to defeat it. Two simple goals in pursuit of one big idea: defeating pancreatic cancer. For good.
Started by Polly’s best friend and her three sons, Polly’s Run is the largest fundraiser for the fight against pancreatic cancer in New Mexico. Each year, hundreds of friends, family members, and survivors run and walk to continue the fight against the disease but also to celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost and those who battle on.
We know our mission is an ambitious one but, like Polly herself, we will never shy away from the fight. Just as Polly inspired countless students and athletes through her teaching and coaching, we will rally our local communities to increase awareness and raise funds for research.
Join us in our cause and help us end pancreatic cancer.
