Run for Ovarian Cancer

16th annual 5 km run and 1 km walk on Mother's Day a huge success!

Our 16th annual run and walk raised over $180,000 and even more awareness for ovarian cancer.

Participants who care and our wonderful corporate sponsors keep us on track to raise $200,000 a year. The money goes to pay for local research at London Health Sciences Centre.

Read how our 16-year achievement of over $2.2 million is helping researchers uncover the mystery of this silent killer.

Since 2006, money raised has been dedicated to research right here in London, focused on early detection and to discovering a cure for ovarian cancer. The money goes directly toward the Translational Ovarian Cancer Research Program.

The Run for Ovarian Cancer started simply with a group of fitness friends and a discussion over coffee in September 2002. Ann Crowley was still reeling from her diagnosis of ovarian cancer when she became committed to raising awareness about this devastating disease.

The first run in 2003 was far more than a resounding financial success. It was a personal triumph for Ann Crowley and the cancer survivors who joined us on the stage to celebrate the raising of over eighty five thousand dollars. Ann lost her valiant fight against cancer two months later.

See you next Mother's Day!
