Marathon chooses Lazarex as charity

Lazarex Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Danville, has been chosen as an official charity beneficiary of the Rock 'n' Roll Seattle inaugural marathon and half-marathon June 27. Becoming an official charity means that individuals and groups around the country can train and prepare for the event and raise much needed funds to help Lazarex Cancer Foundation.

"Along with other significant national charities, such as Team in Training, Susan G. Komen and the Lance Armstrong Foundation, we'll help participants get ready for race day and help their favorite charity at the same time," said Dana Dornsife, president, Lazarex Cancer Foundation.

Lazarex Cancer Foundation provides resources for cancer patients who have been told they have no other options. It also provides financial assistance to defray the cost associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. For more information, contact Tami Keeler at 820-4517 or
