Sonoma Raceway will utilize its 12-turn road course to continue the fight against stomach cancer, the third leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, at the 5th annual John’s March Against Stomach Cancer on Saturday, Jan. 16.
The event is named in honor of the raceway’s longtime spokesman John Cardinale, who passed away in 2013 after a two-year battle with the disease, becoming one of nearly 723,000 people who will die from stomach cancer in the world this year.
John’s March offers a unique chance to raise funds for No Stomach For Cancer, a global advocate for stomach cancer awareness, early detection, treatment and prevention (www.nostomachforcancer.org), and enjoy a symbolic “march” around the raceway’s 2.52-mile road course. John’s March has raised more than $55,000 over the past four years and is the only major fundraiser for gastric cancer on the West Coast.
