Description

The Teal Run is an annual 5K run/walk hosted by The Teal Foundation. What makes the event unique is that direct support is provided to women dealing with ovarian cancer, as well as to their families. Many people are brought together in one place, providing a day of love, hope, and support for all attendees, and an emotional and empowering experience for the ovarian cancer survivors who participate in the event.

Net proceeds will be used to support ovarian cancer research at institutions such as Stanford Cancer Institute, as well as local organizations that provide support services for women with ovarian cancer and their families, such as Cancer CAREpoint in Los Gatos and Bay Area Cancer Connections in Palo Alto.

THE STORY OF THE TEAL RUN

The Teal Run is an annual 5K run/walk hosted by The Teal Foundation.  What makes the event unique is that direct support is provided to women dealing with ovarian cancer, as well as to their families.  Many people are brought together in one place, providing a day of love, hope, and support for all attendees, and an emotional and empowering experience for the ovarian cancer survivors who participate in the event.

The Teal Run was started by Laurie DeSimone and a select group of dedicated volunteers.  In December, 2012, Laurie was diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer.  After undergoing her first round of chemotherapy, she was looking for a way to provide support for other women facing the same challenge of living with ovarian cancer.  Her daughter, Sarah Hawkins, suggested that the family take part in a 5K run/walk held in Los Angeles.  Upon entering the site, Laurie was emotionally overcome and moved to tears by the "sea of teal."  People with signs offered their encouragement and support along the route, which gave her the strength to continue.  Although the family finished in last place, Laurie was empowered by the experience and proud to have met the challenge.  She wanted to bring the same feeling to the women of the San Francisco Bay Area, and this led to the start of The Teal Run.  More than 250 participants attended the inaugural event in 2015, and almost $40,000 was raised for ovarian cancer research and local ovarian cancer support services.

The Teal Run is held in September of each year, which is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.  The color teal is the color for ovarian cancer awareness.
