[BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI – OCT 10] – F2 Sports, a high-performance pickleball brand, is proud to announce its support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month this November. To advance progress for pancreatic cancer and bring attention to this devastating disease, F2 Sports has created custom pickleball paddles and paddle covers that not only promote pancreatic cancer awareness, but also raise critical funds for PanCAN. With each paddle sale, $25 will be donated to PanCAN to advance the fight against pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer, with a survival rate of just 12%. Each year, thousands of individuals and families are affected by this disease, making it crucial to increase awareness and support initiatives that aim to find better treatment options, so that all patients with pancreatic cancer will thrive.
These limited-edition custom pickleball paddles feature a unique design incorporating PanCAN’s purple branding, which is symbolic of pancreatic cancer awareness, along with the F2 Sports logo. Each paddle will also include a protective paddle cover branded for the cause. The pickleball paddles are not only a statement of solidarity but also a powerful tool for pickleball enthusiasts to support a crucial cause while enjoying their favorite sport.
"We are excited to partner with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in the fight against pancreatic cancer," said Sara Wright, C-Founder of F2 Sports. "Pickleball has brought so much joy to so many people, and we believe it can also be a powerful platform to raise awareness and funds for important causes like pancreatic cancer. We are dedicated to making a meaningful impact through our custom paddles and contributions to PanCAN."
The partnership between F2 Sports and PanCAN aligns with the broader mission of both organizations: to make a positive impact on individuals' lives and communities. By joining forces, they aim to bring about greater awareness and understanding of pancreatic cancer while actively working to fundraise for a cure.
“We are grateful to partners like F2 Sports for their generous support of our mission,” said Lisa Gray, Senior Vice President of Development for PanCAN. “This kind of support ensures our vital resources and education materials reach the patients and caregivers urgently seeking information on the disease, treatment options, specialists and more.”
The custom pickleball paddles will be available for purchase starting today and will be offered throughout the month of November in honor of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. Individuals interested in making a contribution to pancreatic cancer while enjoying their favorite sport can find these special edition paddles on the F2 Sports website (www.F2Sports.com/pancan).
