    Lucky number seven is here, and we are ready! To celebrate our 7th annual walk, we’re aiming to raise an additional $7,000 to bring our total goal of $37,000 for Dr. Brian Wolpin’s pancreatic cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. This year’s walk will take place on Sunday, November 5, at Braintree High School with check-in at noon.

    Although fundraising is a key component to our event, it is not the only thing that has the PFP committee members amazed each year. Since 2010, we have had a number of impressive donations for the Opportunity Drawing & Silent Auction tables, including a signed Tony Hawk skateboard, a 3-D printer and even two round-trip American Airline tickets! If you or anyone you know is interested in donating a special prize to this year’s walk, please email on or before October 17th.

    While it is never easy to cope with the news of a loved one’s diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, this walk has served as a way for many participants to gather annually and support those going through these difficult times. We are excited to extend our support and encouragement by continuing to host this 5K walk around Sunset Lake. Mark your calendars and round up your troops for another great year! *To register as an individual or as a team, please go to
