Over the weekend, many gathered at Whitestown Town Park to bring awareness to and raise money in the fight against ovarian cancer. Check out the photos from the heartfelt and moving event...

There was a chill in the air early Saturday morning (September 8th), but that didn't stop all the people from coming out to Whitestown Town Park in Whitesboro to support Sarah Firshing and her drive to bring awareness to a deadly disease that often gets overlooked: Ovarian cancer. Every year the TEAL Walk grows and grows, and this year, the 4th annual walk, was no exception.

In case you haven't heard about the TEAL Walk or you don't know a lot about the event, “T.E.A.L.” has two meanings – teal, being the color recognized with ovarian cancer, and what “T.E.A.L." actually stands for, which is “Tell Every Amazing Lady.” This means to tell other women about the warning signs, precautions, and other information about ovarian cancer and bring awareness to the disease. And that's what this walk is all about - Raising money to help fight ovarian cancer and to bring more awareness to this disease.

Below we've included a photo gallery from the walk. See photos of those who participated in the walk, the moving opening ceremony that included a balloon release from ovarian cancer survivors who were present, and some of the basket raffles and other goodies that were at the event:

The walk is over for another year, but it's not too late to help in the cause. You can still donate online at: TealWalk.org/Whitesboro What a great turnout for the 4th annual TEAL Walk and here's to next year's event.
