2014 NHRA: ‘John’s March’ Raises Nearly $12,000 for No Stomach for Cancer


More than 350 people turned out to support a one-of-a-kind fundraiser at Sonoma Raceway on Saturday, Jan. 18, at the 3rd annual John’s March Against Stomach Cancer.

Walkers, runners and even dogs took part in a symbolic march around the 2.52-mile, 12-turn road course at the event, which generated $11,750 for No Stomach for Cancer (nostomachforcancer.org). The event was held in honor of John Cardinale, a long-time employee at Sonoma Raceway who passed away in March after a two-year battle with stomach cancer.

“John's March embodies John's spirit and the mission of No Stomach for Cancer of supporting research and uniting the caring power of people affected by stomach cancer,” said No Stomach for Cancer Board Chair Beth Lambert, who attended the event with several family members. “It was wonderful to see so many people affected by stomach cancer arriving at the event as strangers, yet sharing an immediate connection, exchanging supportive hugs and words.”

Participants in the march ranged from competitive runners to families, including children on bikes and strollers, and quite a few four-legged friends.

“To be able to come together to support the fight against this terrible disease and to celebrate the spirit of people we loved is a privilege for which I am truly grateful,” said Sacramento’s Kathy Black. “We hope to come together every year to take time to remember and honor those we loved.”

No Stomach for Cancer is non-profit group that works to increase awareness and education about stomach cancer, provide a support network for affected families and support research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment and prevention of stomach cancer.

Stomach cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the world, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. The American Cancer Society estimates there are 1,000,000 new cases diagnosed in the world each year, with more than 800,000 deaths annually, yet it is one of the least funded cancers, in terms of research.

Each participant received a T-shirt and enjoyed light refreshments following the march.

Donations can still be made in honor of this event by completing the John’s March Against Stomach Cancer donation form at www.nostomachforcancer.org/support-us/events and mailing it with your check, payable to No Stomach for Cancer, Inc. All donations will be acknowledged.
