As a local business, we love getting involved in our community. A cause that is near and dear to our hearts is pancreatic cancer awareness, which is why we continue to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – Milwaukee Affiliate. This disease has touched our family business in multiple ways and we are passionate about raising awareness and inspiring others to Wage Hope.
Each year, our family wages hope in honor of Suzanne “Sue” Sajdak Sakwiniski. Sue was the daughter of our founder, Stan Sajdak, and a beloved member of our Stan’s team for 33 years. She passed away in early 2014 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Like many who this illness has taken before their time, Sue was full of life. She shared her love of friends, family, and art with everyone she encountered. Her love is what inspires us to work with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to double pancreatic cancer survival rates by 2020.
One of the many ways we give back to this cause is by sponsoring Milwaukee’s PurpleStride 5K Run/Walk each year. Each year, we form a team and invite our family, friends, and Milwaukee community to join our team! This year, PurpleStride will be at Miller Park on June 24th, 2017 and we would love for you to join us! Here is our team page: http://support.pancan.org/site/TR/PurpleStride/PurpleStride?team_id=6920&pg=team&fr_id=1153. Click “Join Team” to register and be ready to walk with us in June!
Not available on June 24th? There are other opportunities for you to Wage Hope! You can still support our local efforts by rounding up your next purchase at Stan’s or New Balance Milwaukee to the nearest dollar. All donations will go directly to Milwaukee’s Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. For more information on the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network & other resources: www.pancan.org
