ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. -- People walked for hope in Delmar Sunday to raise money for pancreatic cancer research.
The 10th annual Albany Capital District Walk for Hope was held at the Elm Avenue Town Park. The event featured raffles, live music and children's entertainment.
YNN's Kate Welshofer hosted and walked in this year's event.
Organizers say the walk is important because pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cancer killer in the United States.
"We stick with it year after year because we have got to make sure that research finds a cure, finds the early detection, so that people do not have to go through all this loss," said Neil Piper, Walk for Hope Coordinator.
Even if you missed the walk on Sunday, registration is open until November, so you can still help raise money for pancreatic research.
