It's no secret that ovarian cancer is very near, but not so dear, to our hearts. At last year's OROC, we had more Teal Troop participants and raised more money than ever before. While we are so thankful for and proud of our accomplishments as the top fundraising team, this year is more important than ever before.
The OROC race will be held on August 4th, a year to the day when we lost our Teal Troop leader. It is so important to our family that we celebrate and honor Sharon's life in the way that she would want us to: walking together to raise awareness for those still battling this disease and those yet to be diagnosed.
A wise woman once said, "This disease is no joke." All donations will fund research and awareness iniatives that can help prolong the lives of those fighting ovarian cancer.
