TORRANCE, Calif., May 22, 2023 – Keenan, an industry-leading California insurance brokerage and consulting firm for health care organizations and public agencies, is pleased to share its participation in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's (PanCAN) PurpleStride event, raising $20,000 to support the fight against pancreatic cancer.

PurpleStride, PanCAN's annual nationwide event, is a key fundraiser dedicated to combatting pancreatic cancer in the United States. It serves as a powerful platform for survivors, families, caregivers, researchers, and supporters to come together, taking steps to honor those affected by this devastating disease and raise money for essential research and support.

"Our role as a consulting firm for community-focused agencies provides us with a unique lens to understand the importance of causes like PanCAN," said Ju Anderson, Employee Benefits Practice Leader at Keenan. "We believe in shouldering a larger responsibility and seizing direct opportunities to give back. At Keenan, our employees are committed to helping others through time, money, energy, or all three."

Keenan assembled a team of dedicated employees and their family members to participate in the PurpleStride walk. The event was held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, where the Keenan team demonstrated their unwavering support every step of the way. Additionally, Keenan employees generously sponsored Team Keenan and individual walkers by making online donations.

Through the collective efforts of Keenan employees, leadership, and a health carrier partner, Keenan raised an outstanding amount of $20,000. This significant contribution will help fund critical research, provide vital resources, and offer support to patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals impacted by this disease.

"Keenan's achievement of raising $20,000 for PanCAN demonstrates our dedication to the fight against pancreatic cancer," said Jennifer Chien, Senior Vice President at Keenan.
