The Lustgarten Foundation was founded 10 years ago and has grown so much that the people running its annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk have had to move the venue to accommodate the 4,000 people expected to attend this weekend.
“We have grown pretty steadily; had 4,000 people last year,” said Kerri Kaplan, the executive director of The Lustgarten Foundation. “It’s mostly Long Islanders, so for a disease that only affects 40,000 people a year, it’s a huge amount of supporters in a place like Long Island.”
