Past Events

We are so grateful for the support of our community and Team Katie Oppo during our virtual run, #RunForKatie! As the photos and donations have shown us, we have truly come together from afar. Please share in the joy of our postings on our Facebook and Instagram! It’s never too late to join the team and do some good for ovarian cancer during this time of great need!

In case you missed #RunForKatie, there is still time to donate! No donation is too small, and every little bit helps. By supporting us through #RunForKatie, your contributions will directly support:

• OvarCare Patient Assistance Program– This program, established by the nonprofit OvarCome, currently provides financial support, money for gas and groceries, and counseling services for women who are actively in treatment for Ovarian cancer during COVID-19.

• Ovarian Cancer Research at Cold Spring Harbor labs – Dr. Mikala Egeblad and her team of researchers have recently had very promising outcomes regarding inflammation as a driver for ovarian cancer. Additionally, she believes there is a link to inflammation’s role in serious complications in COVID patients.
