It’s time for a change, it’s time to Move Toward a Cure


Move Toward a Cure is a 3-hour indoor event dedicated to raising funds to support much-needed ovarian cancer research. Participants can select from personal training, walking/running, or indoor cycling for 1, 2, or 3-hours!

Here’s how it works!

In order to participate in the event, riders 14-25 must pay a registration fee of $25; for riders 26 and older the registration fee is $50. Survivors can register for free by entering discount code “SURVIVOR” during the registration process.

Participants can register as individuals or as part of a team and ride for any increment between 1 and 3 hours.

Once you have registered, you will be given your own page to personalize and use for fundraising.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO PARTICIPATE?

  • Ovarian Cancer is the fifth leading cause of death among women in the United States and is the most deadly of all gynecologic cancers.
  • Ovarian Cancer is not an uncommon disease occurring in 1 of every 71 women.
  • When ovarian cancer is detected early, before it has spread beyond the ovaries, more than 90% of women will survive longer than five years. Only 19% of women are diagnosed in the early stages.
  • Currently, 50% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer die from the disease within five years. When diagnosed in advanced stages, the chance of five- year survival is only 44%.
  • Ovarian cancer is often difficult to diagnose because symptoms may be subtle, are easily confused with other diseases and because there is no single reliable easy-to-administer screening tool.
  • A woman can get Ovarian Cancer even if her ovaries have been removed.
  • Every dollar raised from the event goes to further research and awareness of ovarian cancer. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of so many.
