On Sunday, September 14th, the Ovarian Cancer Coalition of Greater California (OCC), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, will hold its 16th annual Women’s Health Walk & Run at CBS Studio Center in Studio City. As in past years, we expect several thousand participants and a very meaningful event.
This year’s event will be held in loving memory of our founder and President, Gayle McKenna, who passed away last year after a long and valiant battle against ovarian cancer. Gayle never lost sight of OCC’s ultimate goal – to find a cure for ovarian cancer. Under the leadership of our new President, Chris Bledy (also a survivor), OCC will continue Gayle’s legacy and expand her vision.
Ovarian cancer is a silent and deadly killer of women of all ages. OCC‘s mission is to save lives through early detection, research and education. At this time, there is no conclusive screening measure to diagnose ovarian cancer.
Education is a key to survival. Therefore, OCC strives to raise awareness by organizing and participating in educational outreach programs to inform women about symptoms and how to be pro-active in their treatment.
OCC invites the public to participate in this 10k Run/5k Walk Run for awareness and hope. There will be a Kiddie K, an opportunity raffle drawing, and health and fitness vendors. All proceeds from this charity event will benefit ovarian cancer research.
We thank our sponsors: Go Country 105 FM Radio, Optimist International, American Realty Advisors, Casa Automotive Group, RE/MAX – Tri-City and Bikram’s Yoga College of India.
