Annual OROC 5K Run/Walk Will be Virtual

For the safety of our participants and the community, and in light of the concerns around COVID-19, I want to share with you that the 17th Annual OROC 5K Run/Walk will be a virtual event on August 1st.

We're all in this together and OROC's mission to bring hope and empowerment to those touched by ovarian cancer remains the same. While physical distancing, we can still come together to remember those we have lost, honor those who battle the disease, and to raise additional awareness and funds for ovarian cancer initiatives. Proceeds from this year's virtual event will not only continue to fund promising research efforts, but will also go directly to local healthcare providers who are caring for ovarian cancer patients under especially challenging circumstances.

Simply register to participate by using the link and join us, virtually, on August 1st to complete the 5K or 1 Mile on your own course. You can run or walk, outdoors or on a treadmill - you choose! When you complete your run/walk, take a selfie and post it on your social media. Please tag OROC (on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) using #OROC2020.

Although we will miss gathering together at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we hope you will embrace this creative way to show your support this year, and maybe even invite family and friends from throughout the city, across the nation and around the world to join you in raising awareness and funds for this important cause. Your participation will make a difference in helping OROC put a new face on ovarian cancer - one of hope and encouragement.

Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Cleveland Clinic, for the exceptional care and leadership provided during this unprecedented time.
