Hundreds of people gathered in Manhattan Sunday morning to raise money for pancreatic cancer research.

Eyewitness News anchor Ken Rosato led the Lustgarten Foundation's New York City Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk at Hudson River Park.

The proceeds from the walk go towards research to find a cure for the nation's most lethal cancer, which has only a six percent survival rate.

The Lustgarten Foundation is the nation's largest private funder of pancreatic cancer research.

100 percent of every dollar raised goes directly to pancreatic cancer research to find a cure.
