To the Editor:
We would like to invite the community to a walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research sponsored by The Lustgarten Foundation. The 2nd Annual Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk will be held on September 30 at the Bethel High School track. Registration begins at 9 am and the walk starts at 10:30 am. It’s a 2.5-mile walk and 100 percent of all money raised goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
The Lustgarten Foundation is America’s largest private foundation dedicated solely to funding pancreatic cancer research. Based in Bethpage, N.Y., the foundation supports research to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, facilitates dialogue within the medical and scientific community, and educates the public about the disease through awareness campaigns and fundraising events. It has provided millions of research dollars and assembled the best scientific minds with the hope that one day early diagnosis will require nothing more than a routine blood test, and that better treatments can be found, someday leading to a cure.
The Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk is an event for the whole family. For more information, to register, make a donation or volunteer visit www.lustgarten.org or e-mail PancreaticCancerWalkCT@gmail.com
