Your Ragnar experience is as competitive as you make it. Rally your team and battle the other teams for the top ranking FUNdraiser! Make it your goal to FUNdraise and cross the finish line together! Ragnar is about coming together and accomplishing something we could never do alone. All the while you are helping make life more awesome for others and yourself.

How are the donations you collect put to use?
Each month Lazarex patients get a check so that they can access life-saving treatments.
Lazarex Cancer Foundation 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.
In 2015 alone, Lazarex provided financial support to over 333 patients with advanced-stage cancer. To date, Lazarex patients have cumulatively lived an additional 767 years through their participation in clinical trials AFTER they were told that there were no other options.
To put it simply, you're giving Lazarex patients the chance to LIVE!
Cheers to Life and for making Life more awesome for others!
