Darlene Pittman - Co-Founder & CFO
I am a South Carolina native and UNC-A Graduate. I now live in Florida where I along with Roy am pursuing my dreams of entrepreneurship in the sports apparel industry.
As Co-Founder of Purple Crank Sports, my hope is to contribute to the community and sponsor charitable events and bring more recognition to the meaning of Purple and the numerous charitable organizations it represents.
All the rides I participate in have a special place in my heart but one of my all-time favorites was the Livestrong Challenge in Austin, TX in 2010. This ride held significant meaning for me since I lost my father to liver cancer 4 months prior. I rode in his memory and his illness is what drives me to participate in any and all events possible. We must continue to bring awareness to these causes and help find a cure. This is my way to give back.
