Make strides against ovarian cancer at HOM Teal Strides for Ovarian Cancer, held on Saturday, September 10 at Rosland Park in Edina.

Each year, thousands turn up to walk, run and raise funds for ovarian cancer research, raise awareness of the disease and to give support and hope to women and families touched by ovarian cancer.

The event includes a 5K or 2K walk around Edina’s Lake Cornelia, a Kids’ Fun Run, an engaging program, our annual group survivor photo and more. If you can’t join us, donate to a team or register as a HOM Teal Strides Sleepwalker!

As we mark the 17th year of MOCA’s always-inspirational event, we encourage you to register, form a team and fundraise to make a difference with us as we make HOM Teal Strides against ovarian cancer!
