|2012 TEAL Ribbon Run
- September 23, Syracuse Inner Harbor - Hope for Heather, Ovarian Cancer
Alliance of CNY
An amazing day today at the Inner Harbor. The 4th Annual Teal Ribbon Run and Walk gathered 1,002 supporters to create awareness for ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer will strike 1 in 70 women. There is no diagnostic test and the symptoms are vague and difficult to detect. Because of your support, we can contribute to research, create more awareness in our community and assist families devastated by Ovarian Cancer. Thank you for your generous support and helping to make this year's Teal Ribbon Run and Walk our biggest ever! Event Photos By Mark V. Race Results
