Barcade Brings Vintage Arcade Games, Great Food, Beer to New Haven

Before I left the bar and restaurant I had developed a Pac-Man addiction, reveled in my newfound ability to maneuver a car at ridiculously high speeds around cartoonish racetracks and decided that kids today are far too distracted by their iPads and smartphones and need to remember what’s really important in life — video games.

Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk

Event Date/Time

Sep 29, 2013
9:00 am

Description

Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk

 

Hundreds of Fairfield County area residents whose lives have been impacted by pancreatic cancer will join the 3rd Annual Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk on Sunday, September 29th at the Bethel High School Track.

Pancreatic cancer is the nation’s fourth leading cause of cancer deaths. In 2011, more than 43,000 Americans were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and close to 37,000 died of the disease. The overall five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is six percent. There are no early detection tests, no effective treatments and, unless the cancer is surgically removed in its earliest stages, there is no cure. 

 

When Karen Rowe, Ellen Klaus and Julie Dunn lost loved ones to this disease they knew they had to do something to help change these facts.  Together they have helped to create the Inaugural Fairfield County Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk to benefit The Lustgarten Foundation, the nation’s largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research. 100 percent of every dollar donated to The Lustgarten Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research. In 2013, they asked Jennifer Cathcart to co-chair the event with them. She lost her Grandmother to this horrible disease.The Lustgarten Foundation is America’s largest private foundation dedicated solely to funding pancreatic cancer research. Based in Bethpage, New York, the Foundation supports research to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, facilitates dialogue within the medical and scientific community, and educates the public about the disease through awareness campaigns and fundraising events. The Foundation has provided millions of research dollars and assembled the best scientific minds with the hope that one day, a cure can be found. For more information please visit www.lustgarten.org.
