Run Like a Girl Event to Support Ovarian Cancer Awareness and Research
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. There is no screening test for Ovarian Cancer. A pap smear does NOT diagnose the disease. It is often referred to as "the silent killer". Early diagnosis increases the survival rate. If caught early, there is more than a 90% survival rate. Early detection saves lives. Knowing the signs is essential.
Run Like a Girl (RLaG) holds an annual event October 13th at Richmond's West Creek Parkway to raise awareness about the disease and funds for the HERA Foundation.
The HERA Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides funds for cutting-edge research grants to scientists at respectable medical institutes.
Help us raise awareness about ovarian cancer and funds for the HERA Foundation by running or walking with us October 13th. Visit us at www.runlikeagirl8k.com to register or learn more about our RLaG events.
