The T.E.A.L.® Litchfield Walk was started by Lisa Cosgrove and Hope Assembly #46, International Order of Rainbow for Girls. The T.E.A.L.® Walk Program was started by two sisters to 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. This annual event takes place every September during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month in Litchfield, Connecticut, and other locations across the USA!
Participants of our Litchfield T.E.A.L.® Walk include survivors, caregivers, families, friends and the general public who come together to raise awareness of and promote a cure for ovarian cancer. Throughout the day, there is entertainment along with activity booths and fun activities for the whole family.
The name of the Walk Event is T.E.A.L.®which stands for both teal, the color that symbolizes ovarian cancer, and for the not for profit organization that established this event, Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation. T.E.A.L.®’s premiere event, the T.E.A.L.® Walk, from which the foundation owes its inception, began in 2009.
