DASH for Success

This summer, more than 800 hit Chicago’s Montrose Harbor to support Rolfe’s 2023 DASH for Detection. Over 100 joined virtually to celebrate and honor their loved ones affected by Pancreatic Cancer. The warmth of the beaming sun during our 5K run/walk was second to the warmth felt by the entire Rolfe community. The crowd was filled with many familiar faces who also played a big part in welcoming all of the new ones!

Many touching stories were shared throughout the day about how meaningful DASH is for patients and their families. These memories and celebrations give added significance to Rolfe’s work, and are the reason Rolfe is able to fund groundbreaking research projects. 

This joint effort between Rolfe and Lustgarten Foundation raised nearly $230,000 to fund Pancreatic Cancer early detection research and patient support.

DASH wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of Rolfe’s incredible community, partners, Board of Directors, Young Professionals Board (YPB), and the entire Rolfe team. Stay tuned for details about the 2024 DASH for Detection, and in the meantime, check out photos from this year’s DASH!
