(WBTV) -

It’s the third leading cause of cancer deaths in this country and it’s the same cancer that took the brother of Carolina Panthers Head Coach, Ron Rivera.

75% of the people who fight Pancreatic cancer live less than a year. Rivera’s brother, Mickey, fought it for two.

Last year, Rivera was on the front line to kick off Charlotte’s Purple Stride.

Purple Stride is the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s 5K Fundraiser to raise awareness and money for research and families in the fight of their lives. This year the event plans a return that will be bigger and better than ever before.
