And on the 19th year they went…VIRTUAL!!!!!
19 years of teal strength, hope and love!
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.
This year’s virtual race can be done at your own pace – gather your family and friends together in groups of approved size and walk or run. Run on your own or with some friends. We’d love to see you pictures and how you showed some teal pride and awareness. Racers will have between September 13th and September 20th to enter their times. Check you email in the coming months for more details!
The 2019 Run/Walk raised over $100,000 with proceeds going to support research and awareness activities. In 2019 we funded direct research grants, awareness booths throughout the Capital Region, educational programs and presentations, and created a new marketing strategy to reach more and more women. 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!
