Note from Saul The SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer is the most important day of the year for building awareness about ovarian cancer in our community and honoring the women whose lives have been impacted by this disease. It's also an important day to raise vital funds to help end the pain and suffering caused by ovarian cancer. Thanks to generous underwriting from Swedish, every penny raised at the SummeRun goes directly to the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer. Funds raised through the SummeRun have helped the Rivkin Center grant more than $9 million to ovarian cancer researchers around the globe. These researchers have already defined the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer when none were thought to exist, discovered new biomarkers that indicate the presence of cancer in urine, and demonstrated that the most lethal form of ovarian cancer begins in the fallopian tubes. This is just the beginning! There are many exciting new discoveries being made today that will help save women's lives, and we need your help to keep this progress moving. So sign up today as a team captain and gather your biggest team ever to support the 2016 SummeRun. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday, July 17 at 8:15 am at the starting line. Let's make a move together to end ovarian cancer! Sign up online for the SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer at summerun.org. Saul E.
