Last year we told you we'd keep you in our hearts "TEAL We Meet Again" this year we are TEAL TOGETHER for 20 YEARS!!!!!
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 we hit a huge milestone – 20 years!!
The 2020 Run/Walk raised over $80,000 with proceeds going to support research and awareness activities. We did this from afar, walking, running, riding motorcycles, horses and bikes. You amazed us with your creativity and the ways you held each other is spirit from so far apart!
During the pandemic, we kept to our mission as much as we could -funded direct research grants, moved our support group virtual, participated in Students Teaching Students remotely and brainstorming for the time we could meet again. 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!
