Lives impacted


Our vision is a cancer-free world. We thank you all for supporting our cause as we fight cancer together. 


Volunteer hours


Over the past 3 years, PACT has raised over $55,000 for cancer research at the Hillman Cancer Center of Pittsburgh. 100% of proceeds is donated to cancer research. Members of PACT also take action in the community by partaking in service events.  Members assemble chemo bags, visit affected children in the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, partake in Pitt Make a Difference Day and send baskets to families in need.
