Valley of the Sun Chapter’s 5K Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer

For the past five years we have partnered with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalitions – Valley of the Sun Chapter in sponsorship of their annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer.

Join us at the 5K as we walk in support of Valley of the Sun Chapter’s efforts to spread hope, awareness and an increased quality of life to all who have been touched by ovarian cancer.

5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer

The Coalition is on mission to increase awareness about the early warning signs, symptoms and risk factors of ovarian cancer. Found early enough, women have a 90% survival rate after being diagnosed with this disease.

Funds raised during the 8th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer will benefit ovarian cancer patients, survivors and their care takers around the Phoenix area.
