Yes, COVID-19 stopped us from gathering in person at the starting line of last year's walk/run event on Mother's Day weekend. But it didn't stop our community from continuing to help us raise money to support London's Translational Ovarian Cancer Research Program.
Let's do it again! Registration for this year's virtual event is open. When you register for the run, you'll receive a tax receipt for the $25 registration fee by email.
Choose your distance, then participate in the virtual run in your own neighbourhood or community (using physical distancing of course!) anytime on Mother's Day weekend - May 7-9, 2021.
We have some great fundraising prizes this year! If you raise $125 or more, you'll receive a Run for Ovarian Cancer mask! If you raise $200 or more, you'll get the mask plus a t-shirt! There are more prizes and some great fundraising tips to help you.
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 event in 2003 was far more than a resounding financial success. It was a personal triumph for Ann Crowley and the cancer survivors who raised over $85,000.
Help continue Ann's legacy.
