PechaKucha (PK) is a free online and offline global storytelling platform that celebrates people, passion, and creative thought. The PK 20×20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop and you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way.

With so many virtual events happening we wanted to design and create an engaging virtual event for our community and decided on a PK style event. This was an opportunity for survivors, caregivers, health care professionals, donors and volunteers and anyone else connected to our community the opportunity to share more about who they are, what they are passionate about or a cool project they’ve worked on.
