What is the T.E.A.L.Walk™/ Run Race Event™ Program?
Show your support for ovarian cancer awareness T.E.A.L.Walk™ 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.
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.LWalk™/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.

T.E.A.L.®’s premiere event, the Annual Brooklyn T.E.A.L.®Walk/Run, from which the foundation owes its inception, began in 2009. This Walk is a non-competitive 2.5 mile event with both individual walkers and teams of walkers while the Run is a friendly competition and timed 5K race event followed by an Award Ceremony where winners are announced.
T.E.A.L.® has successfully launched satellite T.E.A.L.®Walks and 5K Runs, as part of a planned initiative to spread T.E.A.L.®’s mission through the T.E.A.L.®Walk nationally, to touch more people than ever before. This initiative allows T.E.A.L.® supporters and Ovarian Cancer Survivors who do not live in the Brooklyn area to attend a T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run in their area. Our Brooklyn and Satellite T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run Program makes 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.
