Teal Trek Walk 2019 – Annual Walk to Stomp Out Ovarian Cancer

Sunday March 10th, 2019 at Eldorado Park in Scottsdale, Arizona

Join us as we Trek to Stomp out Ovarian Cancer and raise funds to support the efforts of Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona and our commitment to informing Arizona’s women about the symptoms of ovarian cancer in order to diagnose the disease earlier, when the cancer is most treatable.

The Teal Trek is the signature fundraising event for the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona, raising funds to provide support, advocacy, and awareness to the Community. Founded in 2008 by Ovarian Cancer Survivors, Michele Avery and Annette Mattern. They discovered a shared passion to help women survive Ovarian Cancer. Michele’s leadership experience with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and Annette’s service with the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance created the foundation on which OCAZ has grown.

The Teal Trek is a unique opportunity for Survivors, their Supporters and the Community to come together and share love and champion the ongoing battle against this devastating disease.
