Thanks to runners, volunteers and sponsors who shared a wonderful day as we raised money and awareness for ovarian cancer research.
Read how our 17-year achievement of over $2.4 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!
