Sonoma Raceway will devote its 12-turn road course to continue the fight against stomach cancer, the third leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, at the 8th annual John’s March Against Stomach Cancer on Saturday, Jan. 12.

John’s March has raised more than $110,000 over its seven year history, and is the only major fundraising walk for gastric cancer on the West Coast. It is named in honor of longtime raceway spokesperson, John Cardinale, who passed away in 2013 after a two-year battle with stomach cancer.

Registration is $40 per person, which includes the walk/run on the 2.52-mile road course, a T-shirt and light refreshments following the march. 5K and 10K race distances are also available, as well as a shorter, less hilly course for those who do not wish to complete the full 2.52-mile circuit.

This is an all-inclusive event - children, pets, everyone is welcome. No scooters or skateboards are allowed on the track.

Participants are encouraged to bring pictures of loved ones affected by gastric cancer to share on the Warrior Wall, which will honor those affected by the disease.

The event is a fundraiser for No Stomach For Cancer, a nonprofit 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.

Advance registration is available at; search “John’s March.” Advance registration is not required; walk-ups are welcome. Checks should be made payable to No Stomach for Cancer, Inc.
