Keenan Takes Action For Customer PanCAN; Participates in Fundraising and Event Participation

July 22, 2022

TORRANCE, Calif. July 21, 2022 – AP Keenan, an industry-leading California insurance brokerage and consulting firm for public schools, public agencies, and health care organizations, is pleased to share its participation in the PanCAN (Pancreatic Cancer Action Network) PurpleStride event that took place on April 30, 2022.

The PanCAN’s annual nationwide event, PurpleStride, is the number one way funds are raised to fight pancreatic cancer in the U.S. The event is touted as the “ultimate event to end pancreatic cancer” and is the day survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters take steps together at PurpleStride gatherings across the nation to honor everyone affected by the disease.

Keenan continuously finds ways to support and get involved in their customers' important causes and events. Although PanCAN has only been an Keenan customer for a short time, the opportunity to help was indisputable. “Being a consulting firm for community-focused agencies not only provides a unique lens for important causes, but it also gives us direct access to help more than a traditional insurance company,” said Ju Anderson, Employee Benefits Practice Leader. “At the end of the day, we eagerly hold a larger responsibility and have direct opportunities to give even more. It is the core of our company and Keenan’s associates feel the same when it comes to giving  - regardless if it requires time, money, energy or all three, we are there to help.”

Keenan created a team consisting of 12 employees and their family members who participated in the Orange County walk, which was held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. Additionally, employees sponsored Team Keenan and specific walkers by making online donations. Together, with Keenan’s corporate match of $5,000, we were able to raise $11,294 to back PanCAN in their fight to end pancreatic cancer.

Since PanCAN’s inception, there has been a 900% increase in federal research funding and over 300,000 patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals who have relied on PanCAN for information, resources or support.
