Hope for Heather: 9th Annual Teal Ribbon Run and Walk
September 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT
The Teal Ribbon Run is an annual event and the largest ovarian cancer fundraising event in Central New York. The Teal Ribbon Run has donated $225,000 dollars for ovarian cancer research. The money raised is used to help fund the work of the most gifted cancer researchers working on the most promising projects. Hope for Heather selects researchers that are investigating improved diagnostic and screening methods, improving the effectiveness of existing treatment approaches and testing new methods that will create new, more effective treatments.
Your support of the Teal Ribbon Run provides the Teal Ribbons and wallet symptom cards to inform over 70,000 women every about the early symptoms of ovarian cancer.
The Teal Ribbon Run also funds other local awareness, educational and patient support programs through Upstate Cancer Center. We will not stop until this deadly cancer is diagnosed early and treated with the most effective methods science can find.
