Swedish SummeRun 2017

Team Queenie

Welcome Friends,

Our wonderful Team Queenie is again participating in the 2017 Swedish SummeRun & Walk benefiting ovarian cancer research in honor of Rachel Harper Thomas. Rachel was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer at the age of 24, and despite the best of care from Dr. Saul Rivkin and his team at Swedish Hospital, she died in 2009 at the age of 28.


Rachel's nickname was Queenie, hence our team name. Like our namesake, Team Queenie is proud, feisty and determined. Our goal is to fund research for early detection, better treatment, and ultimately, a cure for this disease.

The SummeRun & Walk provides a powerful day of support and hope to people who are battling ovarian cancer and the people who love them. Proceeds from the run and walk will support the life-saving work of the Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer, a Seattle-based non-profit that has become a principle catalyst for national and international research efforts aimed at finding solutions to ovarian cancer.

Since its establishment in 1996, the Rivkin Center has awarded over $9 million in research grants to scientific investigators around the world, making the organization one of the largest private nonprofit funders of ovarian cancer research in the United States.

Please consider joining us this year by donating or signing up for our team. Every person who walks/runs, donates or volunteers is helping make a positive impact on ovarian cancer research.
