19th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer
The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition invites participants to take part in its 19th annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer at 8 a.m., September 10, at DCR Mother’s Rest Area, Carson Beach, in South Boston. Organized by the Massachusetts chapter, this event celebrates survivors, remembers those that have been lost to ovarian cancer and increases awareness of the disease.
Runners and walkers will travel on a flat, fast course along the bay. Funds raised will help to empower the community, support quality of life initiatives for survivors and caregivers, promote early awareness so all women know the signs and symptoms, and invest in cutting- edge research until a cure for ovarian cancer is found.
Cost: $40 in advance/$45 day of. Location: 125 William J. Day Blvd., Boston. For more information, visit RunWalkOvarian.org/Massachusetts.
