The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research’s mission is to advance the scientific and medical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure and prevention of pancreatic cancer. Locally, The Annual Albany Capital District Walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research benefits The Lustgarten Foundation. We raise funds for this nonprofit because, as a result of Cablevision underwriting all of The Lustgarten Foundation’s administrative costs, 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to research.

Planet Smilez

Planet Smilez mission is to educate children internationally and domestically about the importance of healthy oral hygiene habits. Poor oral health has been linked to tooth decay, gum disease, halitosis and serious long-term health risks such as cardiovascular disease, obesity, dementia and diabetes. Since much of the world’s population is unaware that poor oral hygiene can lead to these diseases beyond tooth loss and decay, Planet Smilez strives to ensure that children gain the knowledge with which to become responsible for their own oral health. Planet Smilez accomplishes this through engaging interactive hands-on learning techniques, dental-based arts and crafts, dental role-playing and through the distribution of oral hygiene supplies needed to maintain good oral hygiene practices in their homes. For information about Planet Smilez, please visit www.planetsmilez.org.
