Sonoma Raceway announced that more than 400 people took part in John’s March Against Stomach Cancer on Jan. 20.

The fundraising walk, which is held in honor of John Cardinale, the long-time Sonoma Raceway spokesman who passed away in 2013 after a two-year battle with stomach cancer, raised nearly $22,000 for gastric cancer research and awareness, the raceway said in a press release.

It’s a fundraiser for No Stomach For Cancer, a nonprofit organization.

The event is held on Sonoma Raceway’s 2.52-mile, 12-turn road course.

No Stomach For Cancer works to increase awareness and education about stomach cancer, provides a support network for affected families and supports research efforts for screening, early detection, treatment and prevention of stomach cancer, according to a press release.
