Punching Out Pancreatic Cancer

SCRANTON, Pa. -- People pounded the pavement to punch out pancreatic cancer in Scranton.

The event benefits efforts to curing pancreatic cancer.

More than $75,000 was raised for the National Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

WNEP-TV is a proud media sponsor of the 5K and Newswatch 16's Peggy Lee served as master of ceremonies.
