Non-Series Event

Friends, Family, Survivors, Caregivers…you have asked for it and now, here it is! A 5k for Ovarian and Gynecologic {K}ancers. An opportunity to Celebrate Life! Honor Memories! Create Community Awareness! Fund Research!

Grab everyone you know, form a team and meet us on the course. Walk or Run your way to better health and raising awareness of Ovarian and other Gynecologic {K}ancers.

Teal Diva is hosting 5k run/walk event on Saturday, September 30th at Wannamaker Park in N. Charleston, SC.

Teal Diva is a non-profit organization whose mission is to celebrate life, honor memories, empower women, educate the community and fund diagnostic research for ovarian and gynecologic {k}ancers.

Who is a Teal Diva?

Any survivor of a gynecologic {k}ancer. We are Divas with attitude; with a fresh take on life.  We color outside the lines when it comes to {k}ancer like why do we spell {k}ancer with a ‘k’? Read the story here.We are strong and want the memories of divas we have lost to be at the forefront of our efforts in raising awareness.

What’s the story with ovarian and other gynecologic {k}ancers? Why is it so different?

Symptoms of ovarian {k}ancer often mimic what women face on a monthly basis (bloating, trouble with your bladder, abdominal pain, eating less and feeling full) making it hard to detect and has given it the nickname, Silent Killer.  The most unbelievable and upsetting thing about ovarian {k}ancer is that there is not a screening test — That means the PapSmear tests for cervical {k}ancer, much like the Mammogram tests for breast {k}ancer, but there is absolutely NO test currently that pre-screens for ovarian {k}ancer. Until a screening test is in place for ovarian {k}ancer, it is up to all of us to know the symptoms and ask questions. If caught in early stages, ovarian cancer is 90% more treatable in most cases.

Proceeds from the 5k will allow Teal Diva to continue our mission: offering survivors hope and an opportunity to connect with other gyn {k}ancer survivors, resources allowing us to continue advocating in our communities, and the ability to fund more research initiatives dedicated to ovarian and other gynecologic {k}ancers.

Thank you for using your voice and helping us raise awareness of all gynecologic {k}ancers.

This event is rain or shine.
