In 2015, shortly after the walk in September we lost our co-captain Karen Silver Ryan to this dreadful disease. She was an amazing mother, wife and friend to many. Although she will not be with us physically on walk day Karen's beautiful spirit will be with us every step of the way. Karen we walk in honour of you.
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with ovarian cancer and another 2,800 will be diagnosed this year.
Each of these women is central to a family. Every one of these women has people who love her. Just being there to support and honor her means everything. That’s why our team is rallying with the community at the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope.
The Walk celebrates the hope we carry with us every day – the hope for a future without this disease.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity entirely dedicated to this important cause. Funds will be used to provide support, increase awareness, and fund vital research so that we can change the future for the women we love.
Please provide your support by giving generously. Better yet, if you are up for a challenge this September, come out and join us. Together we can make a difference.
If you are a member of this team and would like to customize this page with a special message or team photo, please contact us and we can designate you as the team captain.
