The Theresa Tracy Trot raises $100K for pancreatic cancer research


PEORIA (25 News Now) – This morning the 10th Annual Theresa Tracy Trot took off down by the East Peoria riverfront.

722 runners took part in today’s 2-mile walk and 4-mile run, including 8 survivors.

Proceeds are going to the Illinois Cancer Care and the Illinois School of Medicine.

Her brothers organized the run in her honor and they say the goal is to bring more awareness to testing.

“The big thing for this race is to bring awareness for pancreatic cancer and to go get tested early so that you can be a survivor and be a success story versus waiting too long and it having that negative impact,” says Justin Naramore.

Her dog “Rat” also took part in Saturday run, she was a gift to Theresa Tracy as she was battling cancer.

In total her family says they raised almost $100,000 dollars this year for further research into pancreatic cancer.
