The third annual Pancreatic Cancer Research B. Michonski/Robbins Strong 5K was a great success.

Skowhegan’s Coburn Park was the start and end location for the event which drew more than 200 participants Sept. 26, according to a news release from event organizers.

With the help of dozens of sponsors, T-shirt sales, online fundraising and a couple of people knocking on doors raised almost $1,000 for the event. Donating their time, auctioneer Charles Robbins served as emcee while Monica Beach lead the crowd with a pre-5K warm up with music played by 92 Moose. Event organizers, Beth Norweg, Michelle Aldrich, Melissa Michonski and Jodie Mosher-Towle raised awareness about the lack of funding for pancreatic cancer research and honored those effected by pancreatic cancer with a moment of silence. Gas cards were collected and disbursed to families to help cover driving costs to medical appointments.

The Lustgarten Foundation will receive a check for $20,000 where 100 percent will go to research.
