Purple Stride at Hill Country Galleria
Local Performing Songwriter Joins Fight against Pancreatic Cancer

Bee Cave, TX – 01 September, 2010 Popular Austin-based performing songwriter Karen Chisholm and her band will bring their musical magic to the stage at the Hill Country Galleria, located at 12700 Hill Country Blvd in Bee Cave, TX, at 8:00 a.m., on Saturday, September 25, 2010 to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network during Purple Stride Texas 2010, a day of fun athletic events and entertainment to raise funds to fight pancreatic cancer.

“As a cancer survivor and friend to those who have lost loved ones to cancer, I want to do my part to help fight this terrible disease,” Chisholm said. “By joining us for the day, you can help advance research, support patients and create hope. LET’S ROCK THIS THING!”

An emerging artist, Chisholm is quickly rising above Austin’s sea of singer-songwriting talent with original songs that range from addictive pop to dark, sensual blues to in-your-face rhythmic rock. With a sweet, pure voice and lyrics that live in your head, she brings life to the stage – the good and the bad – full of the sound of being human.

Chisholm has been through a lot in her young life, and the color of that experience is in every one of her songs. Raised by teenagers in Michigan, she found her own way in the world, landing in Texas as a young teen, putting herself through college and developing a career in music and graphic arts. She has survived the suicide of friends and battled thyroid cancer. It’s all there in her songs – not the details, but the sound and the feeling and the hard-earned wisdom. She hopes to bring that wisdom and plenty of musical talent to help the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network at Purple Stride in September.

Chisholm will perform on the Galleria Stage at 8:00 am. Registration to participate in the event starts at 7:00. Festivities for Purple Stride begin with a 1K Fun Run at 8a.m. and a 5K Walk and timed Fun Run at 8:15 a.m.
