TEAL DIVA 5K
Friends, Family, Survivors, Caregivers...join us as we race our way through the Carolina's at our annual 5K for Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancers. This is an opportunity to Celebrate Life! Honor Memories! Create Awareness! Grab everyone you know, form a team and meet us on the course. Walk or Run your way to better health while raising awareness of ovarian cancer.
Teal Diva is a Charlotte based non-profit created by a survivor of ovarian cancer and is focused on survivors of not only ovarian cancer, but other gynecologic cancers as well. The mission of Teal Diva is to celebrate victories, honor memories, empower women, educate the community and fund diagnostic research.
We take great pride in providing events at little to no cost for gynecologic cancer survivors; many of whom are treated in Charlotte, NC, Charleston, SC and surrounding area hospitals. In an effort to continue our mission, we are asking for your support at our Annual Teal Diva 5k events for Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancers.
The events will be located in Charlotte, NC on May 11, 2019 and Charleston, SC on September 28, 2019. You can sign up for each race individually or this year, we are offering a multi-race bundle. Simply click on either tab and then select the Registration button. There will be an option there for the bundle.
Proceeds from the 5k will allow Teal Diva to continue our mission: offering survivors hope and an opportunity to connect with other gynecologic cancer survivors, resources allowing us to continue advocating for our communities, and the ability to fund more research initiatives dedicated to ovarian and other gynecologic cancers.
Symptoms of ovarian cancer include but are not limited to: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and/or urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency). Most people think the PapSmear tests for ovarian cancer; however, it does not. There is currently NOT a reliable screening test for ovarian cancer.
Join us as we raise funds and our voice for ovarian and gynecologic cancers.
