BENEFITING: CANCER WELLNESS CONNECTIONS
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2013
We will be participating in the Ovarian Cancer 5k on September 15th. Granted, we will be working, not running. Because Barretts don't run. It's not pretty. Neither are Gynecologic Cancers, which is why we are doing this.
It is estimated that in 2012, 15,500 women died from ovarian cancer, while 22,280 new cases of ovarian were diagnosed. Help us draw attention to Gynecologic Cancers, Ovarian, Cervical, and Uterine, which pose significant threats to women’s health.
Proceeds benefit Cancer Wellness Connections, a Rochester non-profit that provides free diversionary activities to more than 15,000 people annually during chemotherapy treatments. Some activities include personal training, Reiki therapy, poetry readings, manicures, snacks, crafts and games on iPads. Through your support, you are helping improve the quality of life for people in our community. Thank you!
