My friend’s mother had ovarian cancer and became involved with T.E.A.L.®. Over the years I’ve known her, I’ve seen her fundraise for T.E.A.L.® and support their cause. Her drive and passion inspired me to say ‘Count me in!’ when she mentioned the half marathon.
I’ve always loved running and this is a welcome challenge I’ve never taken on before. Being a first timer, I’d like to complete the half marathon in 2 hours.
I’d like to fundraise between $1,000-$1,500 for T.E.A.L.®. Go team!
Running is my me time – I can just plug in my headphones and let my mind wander. Also, it’s a great way for me to get out all my extra energy!
If I could change one thing related to ovarian cancer, it would be awareness. It’s so common to hear about breast cancer and many types of other cancers, but ovarian cancer has such a small voice on the world stage – yet it affects so many women. Let’s raise our voices and say it loud and proud for all the amazing ladies out there!
My message for every amazing lady would be: “I admire your fight and your courage!”
At a time where Covid has so greatly impacted each of us in a variety of ways, created so much instability in so many realms of our lives – from financial, mental, emotional, physical – I think this is just a taste of the uncertainty that ladies with ovarian cancer feel and have felt. It’s given me perspective and clarity on what is really important to myself in my life – family, friends, my health. Thank you for all your inspiration!
