What Is Project Purple

Project Purple is a Connecticut-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to raise awareness, support patients and families affected by the disease, and fund research efforts to defeat pancreatic cancer.


Founder, Dino Verrelli’s father, Gionvanni, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2008. After a year of several chemotherapy treatments and a variety of other painful procedures, he seemed to be out of the woods. But in 2010, the cancer returned, only this time with a vengeance, making surgery was no longer an option.
“He lost his battle on September 5, 2011. I promised my father before he passed that we will never give up on defeating pancreatic cancer!” – Dino Verrelli

Our primary fundraising comes from participating in Marathons, Half Marathons, and 5K Races across the country; including the top four U.S. marathons. Our team consists of runners from all over the world, most of them have been touched by pancreatic cancer.
