Join us for a Steps to Stop Cancer Virtual 5k 
jointly benefiting the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation
and the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research 
Cancer knows no bounds of gender, age, or race - it impacts everyone.  In 2020, an estimated 1.8 million new people will be diagnosed with cancer and 606,520 patients will die in the United States alone because of this disease.  Despite those staggering numbers, if current trends continue, cancer research funding will decrease by 50% this year, which is why we need you to join us.  We are proud to partner together as like-minded organizations funding immunotherapy, and present this Virtual 5k as an opportunity to stay active and do good at a safe distance. Proceeds from this event will equally benefit the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation and the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

The Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation is dedicated to changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient. CARES is an established as a 501(c)3 and a national identity in the cancer community.  CARES, which stands for Cancer Alliance for Research, Education, and Survivorship, is creating a cancer network built upon strong partnerships with leading institutions, cancer support groups, and researchers to improve the quality of life and provide better outcomes for those living with cancer. 

The Lustgarten Foundation  is the driving force behind changing the pancreatic cancer research landscape. They began by seeking out the most talented researchers from around the world who now have made it their life’s work to understand and treat this disease. The Lustgarten Foundation has had a role in many pancreatic cancer research breakthroughs, and have a focused mission to cure pancreatic cancer by funding scientific and clinical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of pancreatic cancer, providing research information and clinical support services to patients, caregivers, and individuals and high risk, and by increasing public awareness and hope for those dealing with pancreatic cancer.
