Awareness & Education

All of our events and programs aim to provide ovarian cancer awareness and education to the community

Community Awareness Campaigns

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. During this month, we organize a vigorous and dynamic awareness program around New York City and beyond. Contact us at contact@tealwalk.org or call (917) 310-4835 for more information or how to get involved.

September Awareness Campaigns

Each September, T.E.A.L.® partners with local businesses and organizations to turn buildings and monuments teal, including Brooklyn Borough Hall, New York City Hall, The Coney Island Parachute Jump at Luna Park, and Greenwich Town Hall to spread awareness about ovarian cancer.

T.E.A.L.® Ad Campaigns

Since 2013, T.E.A.L.® has taken over NYC with posters and banners throughout September for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. These ads are featured on subway platforms, kiosks, buses all over New York City.

T.E.A.L.® Ribbon Campaign

T.E.A.L.® partners with Turn the Towns Teal® to provide teal ribbons for ovarian cancer awareness initiatives in September.

Each year, we turn neighborhoods teal by partnering with local organizations, businesses, and schools. T.E.A.L.® ties a teal ribbon outside each business or home along with a window poster that explains what the ribbon symbolizes. The ribbons remain on trees for the whole month of September. T.E.A.L.® partners with Turn The Towns Teal®, which provides ribbons for this initiative.

Lightings

A special way to get involved in our September Awareness Program is lighting a building, business, or home the color teal. We have had the privilege to light Brooklyn Borough Hall, New York City Hall, the Parachute Jump at Luna Park in Coney Island, the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and various buildings and monuments in Greenwich, CT, the color teal through National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Awareness Events: Locally and Nationally

Since 2015, T.E.A.L.® has been invited to open/close both the New York City Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ. These events led us to spread awareness to an estimated 2,000,000 people!

T.E.A.L.® participates in health fairs, events, and lectures all year round to promote ovarian cancer awareness and education, especially during September for National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.

T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run Program

T.E.A.L.®’s premiere event, the Annual Brooklyn T.E.A.L.®Walk/Run, from which the foundation owes its inception, began in 2009. Since then, T.E.A.L.® has successfully launched satellite T.E.A.L.® Walks and 5K Runs, as part of a planned initiative to spread T.E.A.L.®’s mission through the T.E.A.L.® Walk nationally, to touch more people than ever before. T.E.A.L.® Walks and 5K Runs have been held throughout the country in cities including: Brooklyn, NY; Savannah, GA; Litchfield, CT; Boardman, OH; Whitesboro, NY; Highland Mill, NY; Fairfield, PA; and McCalla, AL.
