Join us for the 2016 race on Sunday, September 18
With record-breaking numbers in attendance, we awarded Dr. Gary Leiserowitz of the UC Davis Medical Center, a $25,000 research grant in 2015. We are excited to continue our efforts of raising awareness and funding for ovarian cancer research, and we couldn't do it without your support.
The goal of OCERN is to educate women and their families about the disease and also raise much needed funds to further ovarian cancer research. It’s easy to donate as a team or as an individual.
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.
Team For Thamara
Our beautiful mother Thamara fought this disease for 5 years until we lost her in 2013. 2 years later our devastation is still indescribable but we will continue to live our lives like she wanted and honor her by fighting for other women afflicted with this cruel disease.
ROC for Thamara as well as your mom, grandma, aunt, sister, wife, girlfriend, daughter, friend.......you get the idea!
This year marks our 7th year of participation of this worthy event. We honor those who have passed and support those who remain in the fight. Our goal is awareness! Ovarian Cancer is nick-named "the Silent Killer" because, often, once symptoms are detected it is too late. Funds raised support the efforts to find a cure for this terrible disease.
