Thank You to our 2014 Let’s ROC!! Participants and Sponsors!
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in and supported the 2014 Let’s ROC!! Run for Ovarian Cancer. This year’s event was our most momentous yet with nearly 1300 friends, family members and survivors coming together to increase awareness about ovarian cancer and honor those who have been touched by this disease.
A significant highlight was the presentation of the first annual OCERN Research Grant Award of $25,000 for Dr. Suzanne Miyamoto, Associate Professor, UC Davis Health System, for her work on “Glycomic biomarkers that distinguish between early and late stage ovarian cancer”. We are so honored to sponsor such ground breaking research and hope to fund even greater initiatives in the future.
Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you at the 2015 Let’s ROC!!
Mark your calendars for the 2015 race date: September 20
Let’s ROC 5k is organized by the Ovarian Cancer Education & Research Network, Inc. The mission of OCERN is to advocate for research for the early detection, treatment and cure of ovarian cancer. We promote ovarian cancer education in our communities and will provide a network of resources and support for women and their families. OCERN is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization and is comprised of several dedicated volunteers who have a personal connection to ovarian cancer.
Over the last 4 years Fleet Feet Sports family has been lucky enough to become close friends with Leslie Duket & Brad De Luchi. Recently we asked Brad to share the story of Leslie's experience and triumph over Ovarian Cancer. We appreciate Leslie & Brad's willingness to share their story and serve as a reminder of exactly what the Let's ROC!! 5k is all about. Read Leslie's story here > >
