The simple answer is that every stride you take is a step in the right direction to improving the lives of thousands who suffer from Neuroendocrine Cancer (NET).
Since 2004 it has been our passion to educate and support the NET community by raising awareness for NET, providing support for caregivers and people with NETs, and funding NET cancer research. Strides for Stripes is one way we do all that with your help.
Money you raise goes directly to programs that assist NET patients, such as our NET Cancer Hotline, Patient Conferences, and educational webinars. It’s important that you know it DOES NOT go to sky-high office rent and décor, or personal expenses.

While we look forward to the time we can all walk together, we know how important it is to stay safe. If you’re walking with others, please remember to wear your mask and to stay at least 6 feet apart.
YOU CAN SUPPORT AT 4 LEVELS:
• with a $25 registration fee you get a NET Cancer Awareness baseball hat.
• with a $40 registration fee you get a T-shirt
• with a $50 registration fee you get a T-shirt and a hat
• with a $75 registration fee you get 2 T-Shirts.
If you register by October 17, 2020 you’ll be able to pre-order one of our new T-shirt designs! Will be mailing out hats and t-shirts by November 1st.
When registering after October 18, 2020 please list your shirt size and we will be doing a grab bag of the past walk shirt designs. You will receive one of the 4 designs shown below.
We are excited you have chosen to participate. Follow the 6 steps below to raise $500.
Are you ambitious and have set a higher goal for yourself than $500? Great! Simply adjust the minimum donation amount you’re asking of each potential donor and/or increase the number of people you’re going to ask.
Use social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Send an e-blast and share what you are doing. Include your personal fundraising page link as well, so they can donate immediately. Ask friends for $25! Try choosing a different group of friends to target each week. The key is volume. $25 a person adds up quickly.
Walk Anytime and Anywhere You Want!
The official date of the 2020 'STRIDES FOR STRIPES' VIRTUAL ZEBRA WALK ACROSS AMERICA is Sunday November 8, 2020.
Since we can't all get together for one big walk, you’re invited to join us for a Virtual Walk—a symbolic, online fundraising event that you can participate in from anywhere. Then we’ll get together virtually through your social media posts on:
Linkedin @ NeureoendocrineCancerAwarenessNetworkInc
As a virtual walker, you’ll join hundreds of other participants all walking for the same cause, on the same day and roughly the same time but in their own neighborhoods. Don’t worry if you can’t walk on the date scheduled you can still participate.
The great thing about a virtual walk is that you can participate at any time and from anywhere! Once registered for the walk, you can choose the date, time and location that works for you. Then, join other walkers online by posting photos and videos to your social media accounts. Join the conversation by tagging NCAN and using the hashtags #StridesforStripes #NCAN #ZebraWalkAcrossAmerica #NeuroendocrineCancerAwareness #NETCANCERAWARE
You get the idea! The challenge is to create awareness of neuroendocrine cancer in your neighborhood and raise money to fund programs like NCAN’s patient hotline, free information packs, conferences, etc.
Act now! You can get started now by REGISTERING HERE. We are grateful for your support. If you have any questions please call or email us.
