National Ovarian Cancer Coalition 5k
In May ISFA hosted the 16th Annual National Ovarian Cancer Coalition 5K Run/Walk. The event kicked off at the original Comiskey Park’s “old home plate” with 4,000 people running or walking the parking lots and the track that circles the baseball field. The mission of the NOCC is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for survivors. Through national programs and local NOCC chapter initiatives, the NOCC’s goal is to educate communities and increase awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. The NOCC also provides information to assist newly-diagnosed patients, hope to survivors and support to caregivers. The NOCC is also committed to the advancement of ovarian cancer research.. This year the event raised a record breaking $400,000 for ovarian cancer research. For more information on the NOCC click here.
