Year after year, survivors, advocates and care givers join together to walk and run for an end to ovarian cancer. The Teal Ribbon Run/Walk, coordinated by Caring Together, Inc., seeks to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and raise funds in support of research toward developing an early detection test as well as more effective treatment options for women with recurrent ovarian cancer. Last year we hit a huge milestone - 20 years!!
The 2021 Run/Walk raised over $80,000 with proceeds going to support research and awareness activities. We were fortunate enough to be able to celebrate together in person, but we kept the virtual feature and it was so much fun! We were so happy to see team members all over the country joining in!
During the pandemic, we kept to our mission as much as we could -funded direct research grants, moved our support group virtual, participated in Students Teaching Students remotely and brainstorming for the time we could meet again. We even were able to give funds directly to research happening at Albany Medical College - something we will continue to do! This race funds all of those projects and more - thank you for joining us again this year!
