Destination Races partners with a variety of national, regional and local charity and non-profit organizations. Each year, collectively these organizations raise approximately six million dollars in support of their causes through the Wine Country Half Marathon series. By providing volunteer support at events, Destination Races is able to further support these organizations.

What is Lazarex Cancer Foundation?
Lazarex Cancer Foundation supports end stage cancer patients and the cancer community by providing assistance with costs for clinical trial participation, navigation through clinical trial options, and community outreach and education. Lazarex provides resources for cancer patients who’ve been told they have no other options, but who are not yet done with their journey in life and refuse to give up now. We believe that together we can build a bridge to hope, dignity and life for cancer patients and their families.
