Tenth Annual Katie Oppo Memorial Run/Walk 5K
Sunday, June 14th at 9am

While large gatherings may still be banned, we may have a “virtual run”.

The plan is to have participants run our 5k route and then post their photos at our traditional finish line at Flower Hill Park on Bonnie Heights road. Runners who register for the run, post a photo and run time (optional) on the Team Katie page will be mailed t-shirts.

The mission of the Katie Oppo Research Fund (KORF) is to increase awareness and fund research for the prevention, treatment, and cure of Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary Hypercalcemic Type (SCCOHT) – a rare and life-threatening disease – as well as all forms of ovarian cancer.
