The Wenatchee Marathon is operated by TedDriven, an organization that supports cancer research and local charities. Cancer research is a special interest of the directors. Everyone knows someone who has suffered through cancer, and your race directors, Lynda, Wendy & Ian, have all been directly impacted and are committed to doing their part to fight the disease. TedDriven donates proceeds from the Wenatchee Marathon to the cancer biology lab at University of Pennsylvania. This lab is making amazing progress in fighting solid tumors genetically. Please check back for updates from the lab on their progress.
