BOISE -- About a hundred people walked for the cure Saturday at Ann Morrison Park.
It is all in an effort to raise money and awareness of pancreatic cancer.
As part of Purple Stride, cancer survivors and family members walked to raise money for the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
Pancreatic cancer also has the lowest survival rate among leading cancer killers.
That is why this walk is so important to survivors like John Bradley.
"When more people are involved, then things happen and change happens and that's a really good thing because we really need help to fight this disease," Bradley said.
Nationwide, Purple Stride events contribute millions of dollars every year toward support - advance research and patient support.
The national organization is hoping through research, patient support and community outreach a cure can be found.
