Richard (Rich) Ryba, WQ3Q has invited SEMARA to participate in a nationwide on-air special event to coincide with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN)’s Purple Stride Day on Saturday, April 29, 2023. Purple Stride raises research awareness and accepts donations toward finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.
Affected by pancreatic cancer himself, Rich lead the effort this past April during the Hams for PanCAN special event station N3P at Skyview Radio Society. The Purple Stride event occurs in sixty city locations across the country and Rich’s goal is to setup a network of radio clubs for 2023’s special event.
60 Events. One Big Day. Together, We Will End Pancreatic Cancer.
Any SEMARA member having an interest in operating this special event from the our radio room in April is encouraged to contact us. We will reach back out to Rich to indicate SEMARA’s participation if we have at least two or more interested hams. This is a perfect way to pay it forward if you have been affected by pancreatic (or any form of) cancer.
