The T.E.A.L.® Walk is a 2.5 mile non-competitive walk.The T.E.A.L.® Run is timed 5K. The T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run is an event that celebrates the courage of ovarian cancer survivors and the strength of the families who’ve been touched by the disease, while spreading awareness to the general public and raising money for research.

Thousands of people participate in this event every year. There are exciting activities for the whole family to enjoy including live entertainment, shopping, prizes and educational booths. We also celebrate survivors through our T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony where every year each woman who's ever been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in attendance is invited on stage at the Bandshell and presented with a special honor.

    Survivors

    Definition of a T.E.A.L.® Ovarian Cancer Survivor: is an “Amazing Lady” who at any time in her life has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer whether she is currently a patient in treatment or cancer free. It could have been yesterday or 50 years ago. We honor these “Amazing Ladies” and invite them to participate in our T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony. Make sure to check off on your registration form if you are an ovarian cancer Survivor and receive  special survivor perks on the day of the Walk!

    For many, the highlight of our Annual T.E.A.L.® Walk/Run Event is our T.E.A.L.® Survivor Ceremony where every year each woman who's ever been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in attendance is invited on stage at the Bandshell and presented with a special honor.
