On Saturday, April 16, 2016 Jefferson and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center was pleased to partner with Sky Community Partners on their 2nd Annual Point Breeze 5k Run/Walk & Health Fair!
The 5k Run/Walk raised funds to promote and support pancreatic cancer awareness and early detection and to encourage healthy lifestyles, specifically in underserved communities. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth-leading cause of cancer death in the United States and the fifth leading cause of cancer death worldwide.
In addition to the 5k Run/Walk, there was a Health Fair that provided children and families with resources and information to increase their health awareness and improve their overall quality of life.
