The 11th Annual Teal Ribbon 5K Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer Research and Awareness is scheduled for Sunday, September 9, 2011 at 9:00 am at Washington Park in Albany, New York. This event is sponsored by Caring Together, Inc.- a local nonprofit. Once again, the money raised will be used for funding research programs to help find an early detection test and treatments that may lead to a cure for ovarian cancer. Specifically, we hope to continue to fund research through our sponsored Gynecologic Cancer Foundation Ovarian Cancer grant and a research fellowship at NYU Medical Center through the Lynne Cohen Foundation- specifically on ovarian cancer research. We also use some of the money to continue to fund diagnostic procedures for Capital Area women at three local hospitals for ovarian cancer testing for uninsured/underinsured women who are at high risk for ovarian cancer.
