Florida Hospital Tampa Participates in Lustgarten Foundation Fundraiser

This past weekend, our team participated in the Lustgarten Foundation Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk in Tampa Bay. As a sponsor of the foundation’s Tampa Bay walk, we set up a table and shared information with participants about our Digestive Health Institute. The 5K walk had over 100 donating participants and raised more than $20,000.

About the Foundation

The Lustgarten Foundation works to fund and support research devoted to finding a cure for pancreatic cancer, using events to heighten public knowledge and awareness of the disease, and providing support to affected patients, family, and friends.

The Lustgarten Foundation specifically aims to increase research and development of biological mechanisms that may prevent, diagnose, or treat pancreatic cancer. Walks like the one we participated in last weekend allow family, friends, and local members of the community to gather together to raise financial support for the foundation’s efforts.

With an ultimate goal of $80,000, the organization has currently raised $33,500 for the 2018 season. We invite you to join us in supporting the Lustgarten Foundation’s efforts to end pancreatic cancer.
