Participating in Step Up for Ovarian Cancer

Nationwide

For a month Tim will run/walk at least 4.8 kilometres every 48hr to 'Step Up in September' 👣 and invites you to donate, because sadly every 48hr in NZ a woman dies from ovarian cancer (more than from the NZ road toll or melanoma).

Tim will run on the even dates/days during September 2021 and is fundraising for 'Cure Our Ovarian Cancer' NZ charity, which my friend Jane set up after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 32 years old.

Every week, 6 woman in NZ are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 9 out of 10 people with breast or prostate cancer survive at least 5 years; just 4 out of 10 women with ovarian cancer do. Learn the symptoms here https://cureourovariancancer.org/nz/ovarian-cancer-symptoms/

The funds raised will be used to educate and advocate for women; and fund crucial research to find better treatments for women to improve their survival.
