What is the T.E.A.L.Walk™/ Run Race Event™ Program?
Show your support for ovarian cancer awareness by participating in a T.E.A.L.® Walk™ or T.E.A.L.® Run Race Event. The T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ Race Event Program includes Walk and Run events in various cities in the USA.
The 2021 National T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run/Ride
After successfully launching satellite T.E.A.L.® Walks and 5K Runs throughout the country, the Annual Brooklyn T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run and all of our other T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run events are now combined into the National T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run/Ride virtually this year! We have also expanded to take place virtually during all of September – Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month – and include participants from anywhere in the U.S. This year only we are also welcoming cyclists to our event. Visit tealwalk.org/september to register.
Why a T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ Event?
These events celebrate the courage of ovarian cancer survivors and the strength of the families who’ve been touched by the disease while spreading awareness to the public and raising money for research. The name of the T.E.A.L® Walk/Run™ Race Event evokes both Teal, the color that symbolizes ovarian cancer, and for the not-for-profit organization that established the events, Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation also known as T.E.A.L.®.
T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ events make a direct impact on our society by addressing this important women’s health issue and demonstrating the power and unity of many individual communities across the United States coming together in the larger fight against ovarian cancer.
- Over thousands of registered participants have been a part of our T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ program with hundreds of teams since 2009.
- Our T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run™ program has raised over $4 million dollars for Awareness and Research Programs.
