Bowling fundraiser helps fight pancreatic cancer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Volunteers held a bowling party Tuesday evening in Mandarin to help raise awareness for pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, a nonprofit organization, hosted the volunteer appreciation bowling party at Bowl America on San Jose Boulevard.

The event was open to all volunteers and anyone who would like to get involved.

Volunteers in the Jacksonville community met at the bowling alley and greeted with open arms those who showed up and expresses interest in getting involved in the fight against pancreatic cancer.

The proceeds from the event went toward the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

Pancreatic cancer has jumped up to be the third-leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

The nonprofit’s mission is to advocate for making the fight for pancreatic cancer a national priority.

With awareness in local communities about pancreatic cancer and fundraisers such as this bowling social, we are one step closer to ending the fight against pancreatic cancer.
