There are many finish lines yet to cross, and the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley community effort has helped the Ovarian Cancer Coalition of Greater California take positive steps in the fight against ovarian cancer. OCC appreciates the generous support in previous years, and looks forward to even greater participation and support in 2011. OCC’s funds go to support education, research and the Women’s Valley Clinic. There will be many special guests including Star Trek Enterprise star, Dominic Keating and other Star Trek stars.
