EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
The 8th Annual ®T.E.A.L. Walk/Run will be Sept 10th in Prospect Park, Brooklyn - I walk in memory of my mother-in-law who after 5 years lost her battle with ovarian cancer. I walk so women learn their risks and the signs of ovarian cancer so they can be diagnosed early and improve their chances of survival. This annual event takes place every September during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York and other locations across the USA! There is no accurate screening test for Ovarian Cancer. About 15,500 women die from Ovarian Cancer every year in the USA. This is a result of an absence of Ovarian Cancer research funding and sufficient education about the disease. ®T.E.A.L. was created to directly address this important women’s health issue. Women across the country lack the awareness, treatment options, and ability to diagnose which are essential in overcoming Ovarian Cancer. Participants of the Brooklyn ®T.E.A.L. Walk/Run include survivors, caregivers, families, friends and the general public who come together to raise awareness of and promote a cure for Ovarian Cancer.
