The Laurie Jean Run for Awareness
Please help me support National Ovarian Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.
Together, we can make a difference!
Instead of running my annual marathon this year, I have decided to run for a cause! 1 woman in 75 will develop ovarian cancer in her lifetime and almost 80% of woman are diagnosed in advance stages. This horrible disease will take the lives of more than 14,000 women this year. The NOCC is close to my heart and is an outstanding foundation working tirelessly through research, community events, outreach programs and educating women on early signs of ovarian cancer. I have personally decided to Run a distance based on the amount of money I can raise for this great organization. For every $100 dollars I earn through donations, I will run a 5K. That is 3.1 Miles long. I truly hope my high aspirations and motivation in beating this horrible disease will end up pushing me beyond my limits.
