Both runners and walkers came out in force for the second annual TEAL DAY 5k on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Chappell, Smith & Arden partnered with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) again this year to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer. The start and finish line for the walk/run was located at the firm’s Devine Street location in Charleston, South Carolina.
Approximately 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. It is the 10th most common cancer, and the fifth leading fatal cancer. Seventy percent of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed when it is in an advanced stage, when the prognosis is poor.
The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about ovarian cancer. Its mission is to “save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer and to improve the quality of life for survivors.”
