PACT is a student run organization at the University of Pittsburgh dedicated to strengthening the daily fight against cancer. We strive to accomplish this through funding innovative cancer research, advocacy, and service. 100% of our proceeds are donated directly to the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.
Each day, people in this world hope that their loved ones beat cancer. Here at PACT, we aim to make cancer a thing of the past - to transform their hope into a reality.
In April of 2015, PACT was founded by a group of similarly-minded students, who felt there should be more of a grassroots effort to raise money for cancer research. By April 2016, PACT held their 1st annual 5K and raised $5,000 to donate to the Hillman Cancer Center. Each year this group has found more success. To date, PACT has donated over $75,000 to fund innovative cancer research.
Our active members volunteer at local hospitals. They spend countless hours with patients and their families at PACT sponsored events throughout the year.
Our annual Color Out Cancer 5k is our largest fundraising event of the year. Through the generosity of our donors, PACT has been able to donate over $75,000 to the Hillman Cancer Center of Pittsburgh. These proceeds are used to fund innovative cancer research here in Pittsburgh
We can make an impact one life at a time. Our organization greatly values both the small and great efforts that our members make to improve our community and help those affected by cancer.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and fund innovative cancer research.
