This year’s race will be hosted in-person at Shelter A & B of the Lake County Forest Preserve Half Day Location in Vernon Hills, IL and virtually so that all of our participants from across the country and globe can participate with us! Virtual participants will have the month of September to run or walk the race. The in-person race will take place on September 24th, 2022. The event serves as a tribute to National Mesothelioma Awareness Day. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Meso Foundation
This year, we raised over $12,370 for the Meso Foundation! To date, the Mesothelioma Race for Justice has raised over $48,000 for mesothelioma research!

Race Mission Statement
The Mesothelioma Race for Justice 5K was founded as an integral piece of Vogelzang Law’s large-scale commitment to fueling cancer research.
The Meso Foundation is the nation’s leading mesothelioma non-profit charity organization dedicated to funding mesothelioma research in the United States. As the only 501(c)3 non-profit charity organization focused on funding mesothelioma research and finding a cure, the Meso Foundation provides life-changing support to families across the United States. The foundation’s research grant program funds crucial new studies that lead to the development of improved treatment methods and educational tools provided by the group help shepherd families through the difficult fight against mesothelioma.
Vogelzang Law is proud to partner with the Meso Foundation in its mission to build a better future for individuals and families affected by mesothelioma. Funds raised at the Mesothelioma Race for Justice go directly to the Meso Foundation’s crucial efforts toward curing this disease. Together, we can help countless families find hope in the fight for a cure.
