The Geck Trek for Pancreatic Cancer is a 2 mile Fun Run/Walk and BBQ inspired by the extraordinary life of Pat Geck. Pat went into the ER on December 20, 2010 with stomach pains and 26 days later died from pancreatic cancer. Sadly, 73% of pancreatic cancer patients will, like Pat, die within one year and 94% will die within 5 years. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Symptoms are often vague, early detection is difficult, and treatment options are limited.


All profits from the Geck Trek will go to the PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION NETWORK, the leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a nationwide network of people dedicated to working together to advance research, support patients, and create hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
