PurpleStride New Jersey 2022 was a huge success

Love for Team Lou

PARSIPPANY – PurpleStride New Jersey 2022 was held on Saturday, April 30 at the former Mack-Cali Campus (now Onyx Equities Campus).

The original goal for PurpleStride New Jersey 2022 was to raise $405,000 and at the time of this article, $506,871 were raised. The team loves Lou! raised $2,965.30.

Lou and Fran and the entire Contaldi family have been amazed, humbled and blown away (the list could go on) by the support their friends and neighbors have shown them over the past six months. Let’s take this support to the next level.

PanCAN PurpleStride is the ultimate event to end pancreatic cancer, and we want you to take local action to make an impact nationally. This is the movement to change the lives of pancreatic cancer patients and your participation and fundraising makes all the difference!

This is the first time that pancreatic cancer survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters will take action together at 60 PanCAN PurpleStride events across the country. Help us turn the country purple and honor everyone affected by the disease on our One Big Day.

You are making a difference in the lives of pancreatic cancer patients

Pancreatic cancer patients and their families are counting on you – PurpleStride is the #1 way to raise money to end pancreatic cancer. Every dollar you raise goes to fund innovative large-scale research and patient-focused programs like PanCAN Patient Services.

“If you lived or grew up in Parsippany, chances are you met Lou Contaldi somewhere. Lou has always been a beacon of generosity and a fixture in town, whether he was offering landscaping advice, coaching a PTE Little League or PAL basketball team, or bringing a platter of sausages and peppers to a community event. He is always happy to help with a big smile and an even bigger laugh,” said Chris Mazzarella.

Lou recently completed his 17th chemotherapy treatment at Morristown Memorial. Her next CT scan will be in mid-May and our prayers are for continued health and well-being. Lou is strong and fights hard every day.
