Local charity group 100 Women Who Care in London presented a cheque for $33,300 to members of the Translational Ovarian Cancer Research Team and the London Run for Ovarian Cancer on July 18. The money will be used to purchase critical laboratory equipment to enhance research on the causes and treatment of ovarian cancer.
The donation puts the local run a big step forward toward its goal of a second $1 million in five years. The total amount from this year's run will be announced in the fall.
