About The Young Professionals Board

The Rolfe Foundation Young Professionals Board is a group of individuals in our 20s and 30s with a youthful vision, personal stories, and a lot of hope for a better tomorrow. We are committed to raising money and spreading awareness for early detection and prevention of pancreatic cancer. 


The Young Professionals Board (YPB) is the newest wing of the Rolfe Foundation. Launched in April of 2010 and formalized a year later, YPB has rapidly grown from a small, informal gathering of Foundation supporters into a formidable and thriving body that oversees its own slate of unique events and fundraising initiatives. YPB is dedicated to enlisting the next generation of supporters into the fight against pancreatic cancer, and is determined to be a leader in the search for early detection.


The Young Professionals Board is made up of young people who have felt the heartache of pancreatic cancer in their own lives, and of friends and allies who may not have a personnel connection, but who are still committed towards stamping out this horrific disease. Representing a diverse cross section of vocations, backgrounds and interests, the members of YPB are united by their concrete resolve to find an early detection pancreatic cancer test, and to dramatically change the face of this horrible disease.

YPB Membership Information



The Young Professional Board's calendar of one-of-a-kind events are festive occasions that spread awareness of pancreatic cancer while also raising money to fund critical early detection research.  You're never too young to start giving back, and time and time again YPB's events have joyfully welcomed an entirely new world of supporters into the Rolfe Foundation family. See for yourself, and join YPB for a summer evening on Lake Michigan at Cruisin' for a Cure, a dress-to-impress Holiday Party, or for the frenzy of March Mania.  We look forward to seeing you!
