Register for the updated T.E.A.L.® Celebration and Women’s Health Expo

We’re back!
(But a little different than before)

After a two-year hiatus, we’re introducing the hybrid T.E.A.L.® Celebration and Women’s Health Expo, an updated take on our annual T.E.A.L.® Walk in recognition of our evolved mission:
Offering women’s health and wellness services, including public awareness and education of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer, providing support to those impacted by the disease, and raising funds for research in order to find a screening test and a cure.

Our hybrid event is customizable! Activities include:

  • The Virtual T.E.A.L.® Walk, a 2-mile walk that can be done at your leisure from anywhere!
  • The in-person Women’s Health Expo at Prospect Park or access to virtual expo
  • The in-person, ticketed T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony and Celebration at Prospect Park
  • Ticketed wellness activities at the Prospect Park celebration
  • And so much more!

Our event will look different, but the meaning behind it is still the same: celebrating the courage of ovarian cancer survivors and the strength of the families who have been touched by the disease, while spreading awareness to the public and raising money for research. Let’s elevate women’s health – together.

Please be aware, there is NO official, in-person T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run in Prospect Park this year. There is no start/finish line.

T.E.A.L.® staff were joined by volunteers personally affected by ovarian cancer, including Rafael Espinal, president of Freelancers Union and former NYC Council Member, who lost his mother to ovarian cancer, at a pre-game press conference and on the field before the kick off of the game.
