Ovarian Cancer Alliance of San Diego: 4th Annual Teal Steps

DESCRIPTION

Join us for the 4th annual Teal Steps Walk to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of San Diego.

Enjoy the 2-mile walk/stroll, out-and-back along Coronado’s bayfront and view the stunning San Diego’s skyline, passing ships, and much more.

After the walk, enjoy refreshments, entertainment, raffle and vendor booths.

Registered participants each receive an event T-shirt featuring a new design for 2019, a souvenir cinch bag and a raffle ticket.

Entry fee increases to $35 on May 31.

Become a Team Captain and Form your Team!

Team captains are key to the success of our event. Captains recruit participants, communicate with team members and distribute materials including walk bib numbers and shirts to their team members.

Team Incentives

Teams with 20+ registered members by 9/15/19 will have their team name printed on the back of their shirts!

Teams with 50+ registered members by 9/15/19 will get their team name on their shirts PLUS the use of a 10’ x 10’ pop-up, 8' table and two chairs as a meeting area on walk-day!

Teams of any size are encouraged to create a theme and show their spirit at the event! Get creative with matching socks, tutus, hats, sashes, signs, etc. We just ask that out of respect for our participating ovarian cancer survivors and wanting them to stand out in their teal shirts, teams refrain from creating their own teal colored shirts. We appreciate your understanding. Now go get creative!

Post-Walk Raffle

Each walker will be given one complimentary raffle ticket with their event materials and additional tickets will be available for purchase during the event for $1 each or an arm’s length for $10. All tickets must be turned in at the Ovarian Cancer Alliance booth to be eligible for the raffle. The raffle winners will be announced beginning at 9 a.m. from the main stage and all winners must be present to win.

Why We Walk

We walk to raise much-needed funds to support the community outreach programs of the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of San Diego. These outreach programs are aimed at raising awareness of ovarian cancer, the most lethal gynecologic cancer. Currently, there is no screening test for the early detection of ovarian cancer, and the overall 5-year survival rate is only 45%. However, when detected early, the survival rate is over 90%! Funds raised at this event will be used to support education and outreach to the general public, civic groups, organizations and medical healthcare providers throughout San Diego County. Starting this year our goal is to expand our educational efforts by providing financial support to medical students, residents, and fellows at UCSD School of Medicine with a special emphasis on gynecological oncology.
