17th Annual Lustgarten Foundation
Albany Capital District Walk
for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Virtual Walk
Sunday, September 13th, 2020

Registration:  On-line only

As a virtual event, participants from the Albany Capital District area will be walking to provide #HopeFromHome. We’ll be with you every step of the way to help you walk to raise critical funds for pancreatic cancer research.  Visit our Virtual Walk FAQ Fundraising Resources pages for additional details and more information.  

If you previously registered for the 2020 Albany Walk, there’s nothing else you need to do. Your registration and/or team will automatically transfer to the virtual event.

COVID-19 has had a dramatic impact on our ability to raise funds. Help us keep pancreatic cancer research moving faster than ever by inviting family, friends and colleagues to join in the fight as a member of your walk team. Remember, with a virtual event you can recruit walkers from anywhere.

Remember, 100% of all funds raised for Lustgarten Foundation goes directly to PC research.

This year, we need your help:

  • Invite others to join you
  • Go to lustgarten.org/hopefromhomesharehope for social media tips
  • Plan your neighborhood walk route so you can share it when inviting others to join you or your team
  • Use social media, email, and good old-fashioned telephoning to invite local friends and family to walk with you, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing
  • Invite friends and family from afar to virtually walk with you – connect by Facetime, Zoom, Skype, Google Meet while walking

While walking on Sunday, September 13:

  • Wear or carry a sign identifying your team and/or person you are honoring. You can also use the HopefromHome downloads
  • Take photos or make a short video
  • Send us your media labeled Albany Walk. We will string it all together into a video that will be shared and posted.
