ABOUT

The summer of 2009, Maureen founded “Teal There’s a Cure 5k Run/Walk” to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer.

True to her life’s mission, even while undergoing chemo and fighting the disease, she devoted her last years spreading awareness/information about the subtle symptoms of ovarian cancer and worked tirelessly to make THIS event a success—raising funds for research and initiating a vision whereby fewer women would suffer from the disease. In her memory, her family and a wonderful group of volunteers have continued to organize the annual event.

To this date, the now named “Maureen T O’Hara Teal There’s a Cure 5k Run/Walk” has raised over $300,000 for ovarian cancer research for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance, Graces CNY Support Group for Women with Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancers, and Upstate Cancer Center.

Through the Austin run, 100% of our proceeds raised will go directly to Ovarcome, a 501 (c)3 nonprofit based out of Houston, TX– towards their programs helping ovarian cancer patients in need of financial assistance and towards research to find a cure. Please visit their website here to see the many ways they have helped contribute to find a cure for, and help women all over the world with, ovarian cancer.
