Cancer Charity WalkFor those of you interested in taking part in the one of many fights against cancer, Infineon Raceway, located in Sonoma, CA., is having a charitable fundraiser where you can run or walk against cancer.

The walk will take place Saturday, January 7th, on the 2.52-mile road course and that is NOT a flat track folks. It will be good exercise and for a good cause. In this case, the cause is raising funds for the fight against gastric (stomach) cancer.

Stomach cancer is the most common cancers in the world.

I remember from many years back in an environmental science class I took… there were fascinating correlations between the kind of cancer and where folks lived.

Societies that ate smoked food had higher incidences of stomach cancer, those who lived in cities with poor air quality had higher incidences of lung cancer, etc., etc..

If you want to participate in this cancer charity event, you can.

The entry fee is a “suggested” $40. This will let you on the track so you can either run or walk the track for one lap. Even thought it’s a 2.52-mile track, they will have a shorter course for those who don’t want to climb that huge hill off of turns 1, 2, 3, etc..

You will also get a T-shirt and they said they’ll have light refreshments afterwards. The Winner’s Circle will also be open for those NASCAR or road race fans that want to take pictures.

Registration begins at 8 in the morning and the march will start at 10 A.M.. They’re only taking cash or checks at the event. It’s beautiful territory out there and if you’re even slightly inclined, I think you will enjoy the event. Below is a photo I compiled from the track while covering a NASCAR event…
