BONDURANT RACING SCHOOL INCREASES THE PACE FOR CANCER CAREGIVER EDUCATION IN ARIZONA.

 

 

 

CHANDLER: The Bondurant family hosts the third Out Race Cancer® Charity Fundraiser for everyone caring for a cancer patient to get the help they deserve.

 

[October 2, 2017 – Chandler, AZ] On Saturday, November 18, 2017, the Bondurant family opens the Bondurant Racing School track to raise urgent funding needed to expand Arizona Myeloma Network’s (AZMN) Cancer Caregiver Education Program© for all cancer caregivers in Arizona.

 

“Everyone caring for a cancer patient learns something new at every seminar. All our seminars are free to the public. That is why the Out Race Cancer® 5k timed run and 1m fun walk is critical to raising funds necessary to educate over 33,000 cancer caregivers in Arizona,” said Barbara Kavanagh, Founder, President and CEO.

 

“It is quite a shock to hear ‘I have cancer’ from someone you love,” Mrs. Kavanagh a cancer caregiver herself for 26 years said. “We help with the shock and teach caregivers how to do the best they can for the patient.” When cancer invades the home, family and friends are suddenly advocating and caring for the cancer patient.

 

"As a board member. Winning races is something I have learned from Bob Bondurant, and now, I can honor everyone I know that has been touched by cancer," said Audrey Zavodsky, AzMN board member and Bondurant racecar driver.

 

Pat Bondurant, President of the Bondurant Racing School said, “We are very excited to have the opportunity to host Out Race Cancer for a third year. The energy and spirit of what Arizona Myeloma Network brings to the community is aligned with the spirit and active lifestyle Bondurant represents.” Vice President Jason Bondurant added, “It makes my heart smile to see people take time out of their busy lives to support such a great cause.”

 

“We are especially grateful to our business community partners and sponsors for helping us put on this event,” said Mrs. Kavanagh. “The more money we raise, the more live face-to-face educational outreach we do to increase the quality of life for people impacted by all kinds of cancer in our communities.”
