Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
- When? -
September 17, 2022

09:30 - welcome, T-shirts, and puppy bandanas!
Arrive early to get a free T-shirt and bandana while supplies last!
10:00 - walk begins!
- Where? -
Our "hike" will commence at the corner of W 19th Street and Heights Blvd! Our southward walk will proceed down the tree-covered trail of Heights Blvd, and we'll make a loop to finish our walk right where we started. Come join friends and neighbors to learn about the symptoms of ovarian cancer and how you can become an advocate by simply wearing a shirt! The shirts have the symptoms of ovarian cancer on the back. Anytime you wear it, you become a "human billboard" and help to educate others.
St. Andrews Episcopal Church is graciously allowing participants to use their parking lot!
