In 2015, Lynn was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She fought a long battle and lost that fight on August 16th, 2018. Lynn was passionate about everything she did and when she was diagnosed she jumped right in to advocate and educate about the disease. To honor Lynn's memory this year, we are hoping to raise the most money and have the biggest team. When Lynn was passing away, we specifically had a conversation about this and she said we have to carry on the team and get the most people. Please consider coming out for the run or walk and if that's not an option, donating to the #fightlikefallows page. We hope to make this a fun filled morning of remembering Lynn and making her proud to carry on her legacy!
Our wonderful team is participating in the 2019 Swedish SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer. 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, 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 $11 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. The Rivkin Center also supports education and awareness for ovarian cancer and breast cancer, and early detection high-risk screening.
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, education, awareness, and early detection.
