The Be About It Ultra Team wil be racing Ragnar to help raise funds for the Lazarex Cancer Foundation.
Lazarex is a vital resource for patients with advanced stage cancer who have run out of treatment options. We help patients find the right medical studies anywhere in the United States and we help pay for the costs associated with their participation including airfare, hotel and diagnostics. Otherwise the excessive costs to get to the cancer treatment center and the strain of being away from their family’s support would make it impossible for a majority of patients to take advantage of these breakthrough treatments. These are treatments that have and could potentially extend patients' lives and lead to cures for many others. No other foundation in the U.S. helps patients and families affected by cancer in such a direct way. You can learn more about Lazarex at www.lazarex.org.
