Event Day Signs and Visual Graphics Help Make Pancreatic Cancer Run/Walk a Success

The Challenge

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a national 501(3) nonprofit network dedicated to advancing research, supporting patients and creating hope for those affected by pancreatic cancer. As part of the many ways the network raises awareness and funds, more than 50 communities across the U.S. host PurpleStride run/walk events each year.

The Solution

FASTSIGNS® was responsible for seven categories of signs and marketing materials needed for the Denver run/walk event: registration, wayfinding, event-specific sponsor information, tent information, photo opportunities, donations and goodie bags. To assist the masses as they arrived at the event, FASTSIGNS created directional signs to help people find their way to parking, and then to register and check-in. Numerous large banners were created to brand the event and keep attendees informed. A 10’ x10’ banner backdrop was created for participants to pose in front of for pictures. A thermometer sign was displayed to show how the fundraising was progressing, and FASTSIGNS donated drawstring bags filled with giveaways that were given to each runner or walker at the end of the event.

The Result

“Thanks to the amazing volunteers, this event saw the highest attendance (2,000 participants) and donations raised ($230,759) to date,” said FASTSIGNS’ Andrea Hair. “Increasing awareness for this devastating cancer is always our goal and this year was the best Denver PurpleStride event so far. I have developed relationships with this organization that truly inspire me. I love being a part of PANCAN and I am so thankful I have a business that allows me to help them.”
