WARRENTON Astoria teens Peyton Fischer and Amber Longsdorf have both lost loved ones and family members to cancer. Thats why the duo organized A Step Ahead, a 5K charity run that was held May 18 in Fort Clatsop National Memorial Park. The event raised $1,207.61 for cancer research at the Providence Cancer Center.
Its always inspiring to see the younger generation step up and recognize the significance of philanthropy in todays world, said Dr. Walter J. Urba of the Providence Cancer Center. At Providence, we rely on philanthropy for the majority of our cancer research funding. Peyton and Amber are a great example of our youth leading the way.
