The Lustgarten Foundation’s 10th Annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk
On Sunday morning, more than 5000 participants turned out for The Lustgarten Foundation’s 10th Annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk at Nassau Community College in Long Island. The Foundation is the nation’s largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research. Founded in 1998, the organization was named after Cablevision executive Marc Lustgarten, who died from the disease. The Lustgarten Foundation is dedicated to advancing the scientific and medical research related to pancreatic cancer, the nation’s fourth leading cause of cancer deaths. Thanks to Cablevision’s commitment to underwrite all of the Foundation’s administrative costs, 100 percent of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
