Sunday, June 23rd was the the third, annual Katie Oppo Memorial Run/Walk held at the Flower Hill park at 9:30 a.m. Click here for course map. The Flower Hill Park is located at Searingtown and Bonnie Heights Road in Manhasset. At this event, the Katie Oppo Research Fund presented a check for $40,000.00 to Dr. Shih of Johns Hopkins Research to conduct research into the prevention of ovarian cancer. Memorial Sloane Kettering’s Douglas Levine was given an additional $10,000.00 to continue a study on tumor samples of Hypercalcemic Small Cell Ovarian Carcinoma. We will announce this year’s grant recipient at our 2014 event. We hope you will attend as we will have another great event in our continuing effort to fund research to find a cure for ovarian cancer.
