ROC from Anywhere - We're Going Virtual!

Due to the continuing uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic and in respect for national and local regulations regarding stopping the spread, we have made the tough decision to transition the 2020 Families Run for Ovarian Cancer ROC Star Run/ Walk to a virtual event. The health and safety of our survivors and supporters is our first priority, and that extends to our community as well. We cannot wait to ROC together in person in 2021 but for now, you can ROC with us from anywhere! Simply register for the virtual event, ROC from Anywhere.

Virtual participants will receive a premium tri-blend FamiliesROC 2020 race shirt as well as a digital bib to share on social media. We encourage you to take photos with your shirt and share them to help us spread awareness. You can also coordinate small, socially-distanced group runs or walks with your team, family or friends. Socially-distanced packet pickup will be offered for local participants, for those out of state, race shirts will be mailed. 

We know this isn't the same teal spirit, but we will use this time to focus on continuing to spread awareness of ovarian cancer signs and symptoms and to continue to raise funds to support critical research. 

Here Are Your Options:

You can ROC anywhere! This allows you to join the fun and support SLOCA without the crowds. You simply walk or run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions. 

Now more than ever we need your support. Many of our events have been or will be canceled, like many nonprofits we have suffered financially through the loss of these events. While the world may be on pause, ovarian cancer is not and we are still working hard to raise awareness and support survivors in our community. This option will transition your previous registration to a donation, we deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to ROC'ing with you soon!

Description

Are you ready to ROC with us? Join us for the 14th annual Families Run for Ovarian Cancer Virtual 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 our virtual event, choosing to run or walk their own distance on their own date wherever they choose! Virtual event registration includes a premium tri-blend race t-shirt for all participants as well as a digital bib to share online. Socially distanced packet pickup will be offered for our local supporters, those outside of the state of Missouri will be mailed.
