We are ready to start another September filled with great events for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The variety of opportunities and outlets to spread the word are phenomenally large – teal lightings from the Pacific Northwest to Niagara Falls and locations in between - to as tiny as our toes.
Keep the calendar open for these upcoming events:
September 14th – The Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness Walk for the Goose 5K at the Great Western Trail in St. Charles, IL. Friendly dogs are invited to attend and can be sporting the OCSA teal leash as part of OCSA’s Veterinary Outreach Program.
September 20th –The culminating NOCC Illinois Teal Lights Celebration at VenueOne in Chicago, IL. From ads on buses and subways, to the teal skyline, Chicago will be ready to answer "Why Teal?"
September 22nd – This year’s FamiliesROC 5K for St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness will be held in downtown St. Louis, MO. In their 7th year, this event has moved to a larger venue that should bring additional exposure, and has a new goal of $75,000.00. Team Chasen A Cure is strong and ready for the race.

September 30th – The OCSA Golf Outing for the Veterinary Outreach Program. The event is hosted by OSCA board members Dr. Cindy Charlier DVM and Dr. Kurt Klepitsch DVM, and will be held at the Boulder Ridge Country Club in Lake in the Hills, IL. The day will include golf, dining and a silent auction. The Veterinary Outreach Program promotes ovarian cancer symptom awareness on two levels – to both the veterinary professional and to clients of the veterinary clinic. Every life that we touch can be an opportunity to spread the word. Team Chasen A Cure is very pleased that Midmark Animal Health chose to support the cause by becoming a silent auction donor.
