FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dr. Audrey Zavodsky, Record Breaking Woman Race Car Driver & F16 Pilot, Raises Money for Cancer Education in Arizona

CHANDLER: Dr. Audrey Zavodsky, piloted Bondurant Racing School’s new Dodge Viper to raise money for cancer education in Arizona at “Out Race Cancer©” run/walk on June 4, 2016 and will showcase the Viper at “Out Drive Cancer©” charity golf tournament on October 15, 2016.

[June 21, 2016 – Chandler, AZ] Dr. Audrey asked Bob Bondurant if he would accept an idea that would raise money through a  “race to cure myeloma and all cancers”.  Bob and his wife Pat were unbridled in their enthusiasm to support this event.  Bob was very generous and in his confidence of Dr. Audrey’s abilities and gave her a new Dodge Viper to demonstrate its engineering capabilities.  

 

Barbara Kavanagh, Founder, President and CEO of Arizona Myeloma Network, a 501c3 Glendale based Top Rated Nonprofit by Great Nonprofits said, “Dr. Audrey was more than happy to pilot this vehicle at Arizona Myeloma Network’s Out Race Cancer© Charity Fundraiser June 4th.”  This demonstration was complicated by the fact that Fox10 TV crew requested Dr. Audrey drive the opposite way on the course. Fox10 TV crew explains, “We will get better pictures of the Viper pouring out its venom.”  Dr. Audrey did not disappoint the Out Race Cancer© 5k runners as she raced down the straight with such speed that the dynamics of the Viper left TV cameramen shaking and the large crowd of over 250 watching in total encapsulation.  
 

Dr. Audrey said, “Next year Out Race Cancer© will be bigger and better!”  She went on to say that, “Bondurant is the best school in the business and Bondurant’s sponsorship of this race is truly the mark of a very generous human beings. The Bondurant school let’s you experience and dream.  Bondurant offers a program for each of you and it is set in one of the most beautiful settings in America.”

“I’m excited about Arizona Myeloma Network’s upcoming 12th Annual “Out Drive Cancer©” Charity Golf Tournament on October 15, 2016”, says Dr. Audrey. “I’m very proud to be a board member especially when I talk with cancer patients and they tell me how important the work of Arizona Myeloma Network is to them!

Barbara Kavanagh said, “Dr. Audrey, has been a very active board member for years and we are very grateful”. “People like Dr. Audrey and the Bondurant’s build the fiscal foundation for us to deliver more FREE seminars on cancer and caring for the ‘cancer’ caregiver” says Barbara Kavanagh who adds, “they are special because they take an active role beyond the financial contribution to make us (Arizona Myeloma Network) and people who attend our seminars stronger and more viable!”

Arizona Myeloma Network is a small nonprofit educating cancer patients and their caregivers all year long!  "Financial contributions are used to educate cancer patients about their disease and help them and their family caregivers minimize stress and thrive", says Jack Kavanagh, 25-year myeloma survivor and husband of Barbara Kavanagh.
