Why We Walk


TateeWPTF has joined in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer in loving memory of Tatee, the mother of one of our WPTF staff members who lost her life to this terrible disease.


We are all #TateeStrong in her honor. Join us in honoring her memory by joining the Tatee Strong Team, or making a donation.
