Now is the Time to Sign Up for the 2017 T.E.A.L. Walk in Whitesboro
It's back for its third year to help bring awareness and funds to ovarian cancer, the T.E.A.L. Walk in Whitesboro. And you can be a part of the event.
Each year the T.E.A.L. Walk grows and grows (and we're sure it will continue in the coming years). It's probably because it's for such an important cause that oftentimes gets overlooked... Ovarian cancer.
“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.
Registration is now open for this year's walk, which will be held at Whitestown Town Park in Whitesboro on Saturday, September 16th. The event will start at 9am with different activities and raffles, and will be followed by the opening ceremonies at 9:30am. Around 10am the official walk will start. You can register by visiting: tealwalk.org/whitesboro
The whole event is very moving, as you'll meet those who've suffered from the disease, and those who have lost loved ones to it. But everyone comes together to bring awareness, to share their stories, and to raise money in the fight against ovarian cancer.
You can also help out the cause by donating (at the link above). There is a bottle drive going on right now, as well. That's at Bottle Depot on Oriskany Blvd. in Whitesboro. You can drop off your cans and bottles, and tell the attendants you would like to donate the money to the "TEAL/ovarian cancer walk."
