Please come out and join us for a day of fun activities and support women with all GYNECOLOGIC CANCERS. The course will be marked so participants can choose to take a shorter route or complete the full 5K.

This year's event is presented by our friends at BUCKEYE BROADBAND, THE BLADE, and TELESYSTEMS in memory their dear friend an ours, Ellen Jackson, who was an executive in their Toledo office that lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer. About a year before her passing, she shared with us how she just completed her 118th chemo treatment. Knowing this and listening to other women talk about their journey is the motivation we use to continue our mission an educate the community on the early warning signs of Ovarian Cancer.

Net proceeds from this walk STAYS IN OUR COMMUNITY to help women going through treatment for Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancers.

IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, THE WALK WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE MULFORD LIBRARY OFF ARLINGTON AVE. SIGNS WILL BE POSTED FOR PARKING.
