Lazarex Cancer Foundation assists patients in their fight against cancer by providing financial assistance and information on clinical trials and other options. They have partnerships with a few endurance races in the local area and in exchange for providing volunteers, races will make a donation to their cause. By volunteering at endurance events, students can get outside and earn volunteer hours in a really fun way and also help cancer patients in the process!
They currently have three races that they’re recruiting volunteers for: The Marin Triathlon, the Napa Valley Harvest Run, and the Ragnar Relay in Napa. Details below.
