An event in Camden County this weekend will raise money for pancreatic cancer research. The Camdenton Police Department is sponsoring their “Crush Pancreatic Cancer” 5K Fun Run & Walk at the Linn Creek City Park. Events begin at 9am and include a chili cook-off and a silent auction. Melissa Stradt says the police department’s desire to help began when they lost one of their own officers to the disease in 2010.
The money raised on Saturday will be donated to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
