Teal Trot 5K for Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance
The Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA) plans to celebrate Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month with a return to its in-person “Teal Trot 5K Walk/Run,” a beloved community event that takes place each year at Chastain Park in Buckhead. The community fundraiser is one of the largest ovarian cancer awareness events in the Southeast and is held each year to remember those we have lost, honor those who are fighting, and recognize those who support the GOCA mission of ovarian cancer awareness and education.
Presented by Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, Teal Trot will take place on Saturday, September 18 at Chastain Park with a kick-off time at 9:30 a.m. Onsite registration will begin at 7:45 a.m. The event is family-friendly with strollers and pets (on leash) welcome. Ovarian cancer survivors and patients walk for free. Otherwise, the Early Bird registration fees start at $30 and will increase closer to the event date. To sign up, build your team and begin fundraising, please visit www.TealTrot.com.
Proceeds from Teal Trot will support and expand GOCA’s statewide education and awareness programs. For more information, please visit gaovariancancer.org; call 404.255.1337; or email email@example.com.
Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA), a 501c-3 non-profit, serves to increase awareness and educate women of all ages and their families, as well as the healthcare community, about the risks and symptoms leading to early detection. GOCA serves the state of Georgia with public outreach programs, education and awareness, and fundraising events. With no sure way of predicting ovarian cancer and no single screening test to identify it at the earlier, pre-symptomatic stages, awareness and education are an urgent priority for all women in order to protect themselves from late-stage ovarian cancer.
