Join Us

Our community is truly unique. It is made up of thousands of dedicated donors, walkers, volunteers, event organizers and fundraisers who understand that research is the only way forward. They are passionate, committed and at the heart of everything we do. Whether you have been walking with us for years or are new to the Foundation, there are many ways you can make a significant impact on this terrible disease. We encourage you to find a way to support pancreatic cancer research that suits you best. Thank you in advance for making a difference!

Walk With Us!

Get inspired and connect with patients, survivors and loved ones who are all on the same journey. Our walks are a unique opportunity to come together as a community to celebrate, reflect and remember as we move closer to a cure for pancreatic cancer. To date, our walks have raised more than $40 million with every dollar raised going directly to game-changing research.

Local Events

From bake sales and art shows to golf outings, the Lustgarten community hosts nearly 300 events throughout the year which raise more than a $1 million. Large or small, each event has its own personality and appeal. Whether you want to join the folks in North Carolina for Pancakes for a Purpose or host an event yourself, we are grateful for your involvement.

Help Us Make It Happen!

Volunteers are our greatest asset. Walks and events can’t happen without volunteers. We also welcome help at our events and headquarters on Long Island. If you are interested in helping, we will find a job for you. And, if you have an idea on how you would like to volunteer, we would love to hear about it. Contact Jerry Esposito at jesposito@lustgarten.org or call 516-737-1558. Walk volunteers can sign-up from the walk registration page.

Fundraise Your Way

Do you like to move the beat of your own drum? Do you have an important celebration such as a wedding or a bar mitzvah coming up? Are you a marathon runner who wants every mile to count? These are all great ways to support the Foundation in your own unique way. If you have an interest, activity or a momentous occasion you want to turn into a fundraiser, we will give you all the tools you need.
