Pancreatic Cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in this country and it is steadily moving up. This cancer effect a lot of families across the state but more importantly right here in our own community. For the third straight year my family and I have teamed up with The Lustgarten Foundation to put together a walk at Walnut Beach in Milford to help support the fight against Pancreatic Cancer.
Last year we had a great walk with over 250 walkers at this event. I'm hoping that we can come close to doubling that amount this year and help raise awareness towards such a deadly disease.
It is going to be a wonderful event that will take you along the boardwalk on Walnut Beach and Silver Sands State Park. We will have music from BackBeat, Infinite Roots Ethnic Drum and Dance group will perform traditional West African music along the walk route and have some great raffle and silent auction prizes. I hope to see you all out there for a great event.
If you own a business or know someone that does and would like to donate anything towards our walk please contact me. We can get your business logo on signage or t shirt at the walk.
You can set up a team and donate money online at www.lustgarten.org and follow the steps online or call 1-866-789-1000.
I hope to see all of you there for a great cause.
