On July 28th 1999, Rob Lutterman lost his battle with pancreatic cancer; he was 63. Later, his family and a group of special friends decided to create an annual ski day to celebrate life, to raise money for cancer research and, most importantly, to commemorate Rob, who was an avid skier. The Rob Lutterman Memorial Fund at the Cancer Research Society was created to promote and fund research into pancreatic cancer, the first fund of its kind at the Society to support this type of cancer. Whether you are joining us for the ski day or not, your contribution is doubly important: For every gift received through the Rob Lutterman - Ski for a Cure event, the Cancer Research Society will match the funds for this important cause. Help us reach our financial objective of $60,000, which would allow a new research grant to be awarded in 2019. With the continuous support of donors, the hope for a cure is possible. Since 2000, the funding of promising research, as well as future pioneering work in the field, is made possible through the Ski for a Cure event and donations received throughout the year.
