TOLEDO - The annual Ellen Jackson Ovarian Cancer Walk will be held Sept. 21 in Toledo.
Registration is now available online at www.imathlete.com/events/ovarian2013 For registration information, call 877-462-7979, option 1.
Open registration and shirt pick up is Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. at the Eleanor Dana Cancer Center. It is located at the University of Toledo Medical Center, 1325 Conference Drive, Toledo.
Pledges and donations can also be dropped off that day. Shirt pick-up closes at 2 p.m.
Here is the full schedule of events for walk day:
8-9:15 a.m. - Shirt pick-up and open registration.
9:15 a.m. - Group survivor picture under the balloon arch for all women diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
9:30 a.m. - Opening ceremony.
10 a.m. - Walk begins.
11 a.m. Basket raffle closes.
The walk is a chance to show support to the women fighting ovarian cancer, their caregivers, families and friends, and to remember the women who lost their battle with this disease.
Public support in the past has helped the Ovarian Cancer Connection educate the community on the early warning signs of ovarian cancer, provide financial assistance to women in need and advocate additional funding for research with our elected officials on Capitol Hill.
All of the money raised from fundraisers, donations, memorials, gift giving and pledges stay in the local community. Funds go to advocate for women with ovarian cancer and support research which is vital for early detection and saving lives.
Until there is a screening test to detect ovarian cancer, education is the key to early detection of this devastating cancer.
