SAVE THE DATE: Sunday, Sep 8th, 2013. The Tenth Annual Albany Capital District Walk for Hope will take place at the Elm Ave. Town Park, in Delmar, NY.

2012 was a rousing success:
We raised over $86,000 at our 9th annual walk! A big Thank You to the 400+ walkers, all the virtual walkers, and to our dedicated Walk committee who spent many, many hours to make the Walk work successful and smooth.

Bonnie Franklin (TV sitcom, One Day at a Time, with Valerie Bertinelli, Mackenzie Phillips) has been diagnosed with PC. Patrick Swayze and Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer…
did you know that Michael Landon (Little House on the Prairie), Donna Reed (It’s a Wonderful Life), Lucianno Pavoratti (opera singer), Fred Gwynne (Car 54 Where are You; My Cousin Vinny), Jack Benny and Randy Pausch (The Last Lecture) also died of PC? There are hundreds of celebrities and famous people who have been affected by this disease – and over 43 thousand ”everyday” people die of this disease every year. Help us fight against PC.

About Pancreatic Cancer (PC):
Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer death in the US.
Over 43,000 people are diagnosed annually in the U.S., and about 43,000 will die within the first year. Less than 5% will survive beyond five years.
There’s no early detection test (yet).
There’s no cure (yet).
Research is our best weapon to fight this disease.
The Lustgarten Foundation, dedicated solely to pancreatic cancer research, has raised over $66 million in support of promising pancreatic cancer research. Due to underwriting by Cablevision of NY, 100% of all donations goes to PC research! The Foundation is working to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and the research being done to fight it. They want to celebrate progress in the fight against this disease. You can help. Your support today can mean a cure tomorrow. Register for our Walk HERE. You can create a team, join a team, walk as an individual, or even “virtually walk”. Registration remains open until November, so even if you miss the walk, you can still help raise funds.
