Ovarian and other cancer survivors in the event are encouraged to seek pledges for their participation. Please consider making a pledge in the form of a donation naming who you would like to support. We also provide a pledge form at http://www.ovariancancerfoundation.org/helpful-forms.

Our previous races saw many groups and individuals go out of their way to set up fundraising teams and individual campaigns to assist us with our mission to provide financial assistance to patients fighting ovarian cancer. While this is NOT mandatory to participate in our event, it is available to you if you would like to further assist. This year we have set up a fundraising page at Crowdrise:

We thank you in advance should you decide to help us raise funds. If you have any additional questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

VIRTUAL RUNNING TEAM
Register your Virtual Running Team as well and run for CMOCF and ovarian cancer anywhere! Get your friends to support you as well and help us give support to the women who can't participate.

VOLUNTEERS
We can use help in several areas for this and future events, such as registration, water distribution, timing, set-up, and more. If you or your group is interested in helping out, please register above.
