2022 Lazarex 5.44K
What is the 5.44K?
This is a family friendly event, kids and pets are welcome! The Lazarex 5.44K is an activity (walk, run cycle, swim, etc.) that you can do anywhere, in your hometown, indoors on a treadmill, on your bike, you get the idea! No parking, no crowds or busy travel, just great fun. It’s an easy way to raise funds for an amazing cause and be active in your neighborhood.
Simply register and complete a distance of 5.44K (3.38 miles). Share / tag your photos #Lazarex544K. Your participation will raise funds for the programs and patients of Lazarex Cancer Foundation.
WHY 5.44K? We chose 5.44K (3.38 miles) because our patients travel an average of 544 miles RT for their cancer treatments.
Adjusting for the Coronavirus
Since life is still uncertain in regards to the coronavirus, but we are planning (for now) for this to be both a virtual and in person event. Participants may complete 5.44K (3.38 miles) on their own, in a location of their choice. San Francisco Bay Area participants have the option to meet in Danville, CA at the Lazarex parking lot and leave together to run or walk a route through town, after a warm up.
Reasons to do the 5.44K: Especially now we need to ensure that the cancer patients we serve can continue to afford to get to their treatments. Lazarex eases the financial burden of the out of pocket costs for travel to clinical trials for each patient. We rely on public funding to be able to provide this service.
Sponsorship & Vendors
Fingers crossed, we have decided to hold the 2022 5.44K as an in person & virtual event. Covid permitting, Bay Area participants have the option to meet in Danville, CA at the Lazarex parking lot and leave together to run or walk a route through town. Vendor tables are available. Alternately, registered participants may complete 5.44K (3.38 miles) on their own, in a location of their choice, anywhere in the world.
If you have registered as a 5.44K sponsor or vendor and have questions, or would like to sponsor this virtual event please, contact us!
Help Save Lives
As a publicly funded nonprofit we rely on donations to continue to be able to provide our patient support services. Lazarex Cancer Foundation improves the outcome of cancer care for advanced stage cancer patients of all ages, with all types of cancer, from all walks of life. We assist patients with their costs to access cancer treatments through FDA trials nationwide and with identifying clinical trial options.
