Are you ready to ROC with us? Join us for the 16th annual Families Run for Ovarian Cancer ROC Star Run/ Walk! The ROC Star event was started in 2006 by the Jorgensen family as their wife, mother and Nana, Brenda, fought her own battle with ovarian cancer. Sadly, she lost that battle in 2011 but the event continues to honor her spirit and to raise funds for ovarian cancer research and ongoing awareness programs through St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness.
Participants can register for a timed 5k run/ walk or a 1-mile fun run/ walk - or if you can't join us in person you can ROC from Home! All event registration includes a limited edition shirt for all participants while supplies last. Please note ROC from Home participants' event shirts will be mailed AFTER the in-person event and a shipping charge of $5 will be added to each registration.
The event is family and dog-friendly and will include music by TKO DJs and will be emceed by our friend, Y98's Julie Tristan. Flu shots will be provided on-site by Walgreens for those would would like to get one (ages 7+) and there will be snacks as well as roaming selfie stations and of course the beloved Bubble Bus.
To recognize and honor our ovarian cancer survivors in attendance during our ceremony we will call each survivor by name and as they come forward we will share a flower and applaud them. All registered survivors in attendance should make their way to the stage for the ceremony and remain afterwards for a group photo.
Honor & Memory Wall
The event will host an "In Honor and Memory" wall where participants can attach a photo, write a message, or share an inspiring quote and more. SLOCA will provide the materials but feel free to bring photos. Please note, materials affixed to the memory wall cannot be returned.
There is ample parking available in downtown St. Louis both on-street and in public parking garages. Please reference this downtown parking map.
