What is T.E.A.L.®'s Walk/Run™ Program?

T.E.A.L.®’s Walk/Run™ events celebrate the courage of ovarian cancer survivors and the strength of the families who’ve been touched by the disease, while spreading awareness to the public and raising money for research.  

Contact us about organizing a T.E.A.L.® Walk™ or Run in your area!

The name of the T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ race event refers to both Teal, the color that symbolizes ovarian cancer, and to the not-for-profit organization that established the events, Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation also known as T.E.A.L.®.

T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ events make a direct impact on our society by addressing this important women’s health issue and demonstrating the power and unity of many individual communities across the United States coming together to fight against ovarian cancer.

Thousands of registered participants have been a part of our T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ program with hundreds of teams since 2009.

Our T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ program has raised over $4 million dollars for our Awareness, Survivor and Medical Research Programs.

History of the 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. Started in Prospect Park, Brooklyn by founders Louisa and Pamela, the event has grown to take place in other cities of the United States thanks to the help of amazing volunteers.

The original Walk remains a non-competitive 2.5 mile event with both individual walkers and teams of walkers while the Run is a friendly competition and timed 5K race followed by an Award Ceremony where winners are announced. One of the highlights of the annual event is the T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony (anyone ever diagnosed with ovarian cancer is invited to participate in this amazing ceremony.) Registration is required. Virtual options are also available.
