Let's Walk and Let it Shine!
Today, thousands of Canadian women are living with Ovarian Cancer and another 3,100 will be diagnosed this year, I was one of these women when I was given the news in March 2020 and I am still fighting today.
The Walk celebrates the hope I carry with me every day – the hope for a future without this disease. For 2021, we are hoping to raise funds and, in tribute to the 3,100 women that will be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer this year, our team is collectively walking 2 km for every women that will be diagnosed or 6,200 km, from May 8th, 2021 (World Ovarian Cancer Day) to September 12th, 2021, the day of the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope!! We hit 90% of our team walking 6,200 km goal. So proud we were walking 2 km each for the 3,100 women that will be diagnosed in 2021.
Every dollar we raise supports Ovarian Cancer Canada, the only national charity that champions the health and well-being of women with ovarian cancer and others at risk of this disease. Funds will be used to fund vital research, spur advocacy efforts, and provide support so that we can help women with, or at risk of, ovarian cancer live fuller, better, longer lives.
