Description

On Sunday, October 14, local residents will join together for The Lustgarten Foundation’s 12th annual Long Island Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk, which will be held at Jones Beach in Wantagh, Long Island. Walkers can participate in a one- or three-mile walk along Jones Beach’s scenic boardwalk.

 

Since its inception, the Long Island walk has grown to more than 6,000 participants and raised more than $8.2 million for promising research. And because of Cablevision’s support of The Lustgarten Foundation, 100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to pancreatic cancer research aimed at early detection, better treatments, and ultimately, a cure.
