Teal Trek Walk 2018 – Annual Walk to Stomp Out Ovarian Cancer

March 4th 2018 at Chaparral 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.

Parking and Drop Off Information

Parking near the event is very limited, if you require assistance walking we suggest being dropped off at the entrance (note the map) and have a family or friend park your car in the lot just North of Jackrabbit Rd. We will have a couple of Volunteer Shuttles helping to pick up in the parking lot and drop off at the Event, so keep an eye out.
Drop Off Area
There is a Roundabout area that we are designating as a drop off zone for anyone that isn’t able to walk a long distance. We would like for anyone that is currently in treatment, any cancer survivors, or anyone that may have difficulty walking in general be dropped off in this zone. We are specifically asking that unless you meet the criteria above, you do not utilize this roundabout or the smaller parking lot it’s attached to.
Survivor / In Treatment Parking
The closest parking lot to the Teal Trek Ramada is located by the Roundabout / drop off area. There are about 40 parking spaces in this area. We would like to ask the general public to save this parking lot for cancer survivors, women that are currently in treatment, or people that are unable to walk from the other parking lots.
General Parking Areas
Chaparral Park has three sizable parking lots that run north on Hayden along the soccer, baseball, and softball fields. All of the entrances are along Hayden Rd as well. You are welcome to park in any available space.  We don’t anticipate that parking will be an issue, however we are also sharing the park with the general public. We are attempting to coordinate volunteers to help assist with parking and to ensure you are able to find a spot at the event.
Overflow Parking
In the event that all parking spaces are full in all parking lots, we are suggesting that you use your best judgement and park on a city street near the park and walk from there.  Please be courteous to the neighborhood and do not block driveways.

Teal Trek Walk 2018 Route

The Teal Trek Walk essentially follows a path around the lake starting at the Event Ramada. One lap around the lake is approximately one (1) mile.  It’s your choice whether you want to walk around it once, or if you want to go around it up to three times to get roughly a 5K.  (Measurements are estimates only).

Event Location / Chaparral Park

Teal Trek Walk 2018 takes place at Chaparral Park in Scottsdale, Arizona. The park is on the corner of Hayden Road and Chaparral Road.
