KINGSBURY OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT 2019

Under the most perfect blue and sunny sky, over 100 golfers participated in the 5th annual Kingsbury Open at Bear Dance in Larkspur, Colorado. The annual event, held to help fund pancreatic cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, has raised more than $100,000 since its inception. The Kingsbury Open was founded by Lisa Kingsbury Goodman in memory of her father, Thomas, whom she lost to pancreatic cancer. With the involvement of her husband Joe, family and incredible staff at Washington Park Chiropractic, the Kingsbury Open has become one of the most enjoyed and anticipated golf events in Colorado. WINGS OF HOPE founder Maureen Shul stated, “We are so proud to partner with the Kingsbury Open in the fight against pancreatic cancer, and look forward to our continued partnership and having an impact on the pancreatic cancer research taking place here at Anschutz Medical Campus.”

The annual Kingsbury Open Happy Hour event, held the week leading up to the Kingsbury Open Golf Tournament, was wildly successful in raising funding for pancreatic cancer research and providing a great time for the overflow crowd at The Country Club on South Broadway. The event attracted many of the golfers who will be participating in the upcoming Kingsbury Open, those who support the effort to fund pancreatic cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center and the incredible staff from Washington Park Chiropractic who host and organize the happy hour as well as tournament. Proceeds from both events go to WINGS OF HOPE to fund pancreatic cancer research. “I am so proud and thankful to have this partnership with Washington Park Chiropractic and give special thanks to Lisa and Joe Goodman, Kelsey Schwab, Alyssa Krizek and Jill Schurman,” stated WINGS OF HOPE founder Maureen Shul.

2019 WORLD PANCREATIC CANCER COALITION CONFERENCE

Coral Gables, Florida

At the 2019 World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition Conference held in Coral Gables, Florida, 100 organization leaders met representing 50 organizations from 21 countries. Now in its fifth year, the WPCC meets on an annual basis to collaborate efforts in raising awareness, education, research, treatments and patient care. Everyday 1,250 people worldwide are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Of those diagnosed, only 2 - 9 percent will survive five years. “Because of the efforts of the passionate and extraordinary members of this coalition, pancreatic cancer research has steadily grown and awareness through global collaboration has reached new heights,” stated WINGS OF HOPE founder Maureen Shul.

EVENING OF HOPE featuring TRICIA DOWNING Raises Crucial Funding for Pancreatic Cancer Research

Despite a debilitating winter freeze that covered the roads and windshields of metro Denver, WINGS OF HOPE FOR PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH managed to raise more than $75,000 at their annual 2018 Evening of Hope fundraiser.

“We had contemplated cancellation due to the weather, but the turnout was one of our best and the amount raised was indeed the most at any Evening of Hope event,” said Maureen Shul, WINGS OF HOPE founder and executive director. The funds raised at the event, coupled with those generated at other year-round events, give crucial support to groundbreaking pancreatic cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

Guest speaker was competitive cyclist Tricia Downing, who shared her story of being struck by a car while training on her bike in Golden, leaving her paralyzed from the chest down. In one split moment Tricia went from being a renowned cyclist to a paraplegic requiring a wheelchair for mobility. With mental toughness and grit, Tricia came through an unfathomable injury and rehabilitation, returning to athletics on the world stage in 4 different wheelchair sports. Tricia’s story of turning a life altering tragedy into a journey of self-discovery and inner strength was an unforgettable and inspiring message of hope and perseverance.

Everyday, more than 1,000 people worldwide are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Out of that number an estimated 985 will die. Horribly, pancreatic cancer is proportionally under represented when it comes to clinical trials and research, despite the growing number of people being diagnosed. In 2020, pancreatic cancer is expected to become the 2nd deadliest of all cancers.

To help raise global awareness and drive transformational change for those impacted by pancreatic cancer, the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition was formed several years ago. With 74 organizations from 31 countries as members, the WPCC is having an impact in effectively raising awareness worldwide and demanding better in all facets of this disease.

In May 2018, the WPCC held their annual conference in Coral Gables, Florida. WINGS OF HOPE was proud to be represented and a participant in this conference. Attended by 40 organizations from 22 countries, conference topics included early detection progress, research updates, pre-disposition to the disease and prevention. There was specific focus on the need to advance early detection methods in order to prevent the high number who are diagnosed after the disease has already advanced to stage IV. To date, standard treatments of the disease have not been successful, and novel therapeutic approaches continue to be tried.

4th ANNUAL KINGSBURY OPEN GOLF TOURNAMENT

The 4th annual Kingsbury Open was held June 14 at Bear Dance in Larkspur, Colorado to raise awareness and funding for pancreatic cancer research. Started several years ago by Lisa Goodman in memory of her father, Tom Kingsbury, who passed away from pancreatic cancer and was passionate about the game of golf, the annual event sells out quickly and is becoming one of Denver’s premier golf events.

Through their partnership, proceeds from the Kingsbury Open go to WINGS OF HOPE FOR PANCREATIC CANCER RESEARCH to help fund grants for research projects involving pancreatic cancer at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Last year WINGS OF HOPE awarded three $50,000.00 grants to teams of researchers and physicians at the CU Cancer Center involved in pancreatic cancer research.

After 18 holes of golf (that included watching with awe the most majestic bear walking across the fairway) participants were treated to lunch at Bear Dance Clubhouse, where awards were presented by Kingsbury Open chairperson Kelsey Schwab, and remarks given by Kingsbury Open founder Lisa Goodman and WINGS OF HOPE founder Maureen Shul.

On the most beautiful Colorado day, over a hundred golfers came out to not only enjoy a spectacular day of golf at Bear Dance, but also help advance pancreatic cancer research, and WINGS OF HOPE thanks each and every one of them.

WINGS OF HOPE INVITED TO SHELBY BREAKFAST CLUB

The Shelby Breakfast Club invited WINGS OF HOPE founder Maureen Shul to their pancake breakfast meeting to learn what the foundation is doing to fight pancreatic cancer. Shelby Breakfast Club member Marsha Lessar, who lost her husband Gene to this disease and who is a WINGS OF HOPE volunteer, was instrumental in having Maureen attend so club members could learn more about pancreatic cancer early warning signs, statistics and research developments. But it was the collection of mint condition Shelbys at the home of hosts John and Ginny Wilson in Littleton that were the main attraction. Many of these collector cars are seen in auto shows and parades. Thank you Marsha and the entire Shelby Breakfast Club for an enjoyable Saturday morning and for your generous donations, all of which go directly to pancreatic cancer research.
