The Sherry Shumaker Memorial Pancreatic Cancer 5K began in an effort to remember an educator and Huntington resident, Sherry L. Shumaker, who died after a hard battle with Pancreatic Cancer. This event has grown and is a local resource for information about Pancreatic Cancer. The Sherry Shumaker Memorial Fund, Inc. has raised $24,053 to date for Pancreatic Cancer Research. This event continues to raise funds and awareness in our community about this disease. All proceeds are donated to The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. The Lustgarten Foundation's operating costs are underwritten by Cablevision, which means 100% of all funds donated go directly to Pancreatic Cancer Research.
