The Duryea at Dusk committee raised $10,750 for the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute at their third Duryea at Dusk 5K and Festival held in early June in Duryea. The event featured a 5K run, a one-mile fun walk and a festival including food, games, basket raffles, local business vendors and a deejay. Proceeds from this event will help the Cancer Institute continue to ease the burden of cancer in northeastern Pennsylvania and support the local community through their programs and services.

About Duryea at Dusk
