About Beau's 5K Run/Walk
The Beau's 5K for Ovarian Cancer Canada is inspired by Vankleek Hill's Ashley Courtois (Cowan) whose friends and family started this race when Ashley was diagnosed with the disease in 2015. The event started small but grew each year during Ashley's three-year battle with ovarian cancer. Ashley succumbed to her cancer in 2018, but we continue the race in honour of her wonderful strength and spirit, and her love of running. The total money raised by the Beau's 5K for Ovarian Cancer Canada to-date is more than $205,000.
A message from Ashley in 2017: "Every year this event has surpassed my expectations and I want to thank everyone who has donated, participated, and collected donations for it. I hope this has helped to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms, and that by sharing my story and what to look out for, I have had some part in helping at least one woman get diagnosed earlier."
