Sonoma Raceway to host fourth John’s March Against Stomach Cancer:

Sonoma Raceway will host the fourth John's March Against Stomach Cancer on Jan. 17 to support the battle against gastric cancer, one of the world's leading causes of cancer-related deaths.

The event is named in honor of John Cardinale, the raceway's longtime vice president of media and community relations, who passed away in 2013 after a two-year battle with the disease, becoming one of nearly 11,000 people who die from stomach cancer in the U.S. each year.

"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, who attended the 2014 event. "We hope to come together every year to take time to remember and honor those we love."

John's March offers a unique chance to raise funds for No Stomach For Cancer (www.nostomachforcancer.org) and enjoy a symbolic "march" around the raceway's 12-turn, 2.52-mile road course. John's March has raised more than $40,000 over the past three years and is the only major fundraiser for gastric cancer on the West Coast.
