Since the event began the goal has always been to raise $1 million dollars in support of pancreatic cancer research to honor Mike, his family, and to help others with early detection of pancreatic cancer. Over the last 12 years, the Bigelow Open has raised more than $925,000 in charitable donations. With the community’s continued support, they intend to reach that $1 million target by July 2022. And they have no intention of stopping there.
All proceeds for the Bigelow Open benefit the Pancreatic Cyst and Cancer Early Detection Center, which is dedicated to promoting early detection of pancreatic cancer and preventing it through registries, community outreach, education and research discovery.
