Edison National Bank was among the sponsors for the Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk. The event took place on February 24 at Southwest Florida-Florida SouthWestern State College’s Lee County Campus.
“The Lustgarten Foundation is making real headway in identifying effective treatment and ultimately a cure for pancreatic cancer,” said Edison National Bank President Robbie Roepstorff. “We are honored to help them raise funds and awareness.”
Beyond serving as one of the walk sponsors, Edison also had a group of eight, including bankers and children, participating at the event.
“At Edison, we take great pride in volunteering as a group,” said Edison Marketing Coordinator Katie Shea. “Knowing that 100% of the event’s proceeds are going to fund research made our participation feel really worthwhile.”
The mission of the Lustgarten Foundation is to advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer. To learn more visit www.lustgarten.org.
