13th Annual W.A.R. (Walk and Run) Against Ovarian Cancer

Ovations for the Cure’s W.A.R. Against Ovarian Cancer has gone VIRTUAL!

Following the State guidelines that have canceled all events until September, gathering on June 14th for this event is not in the best interest of our community. Are we disappointed to not see our amazing community at this year’s 13th Annual W.A.R. (Walk and Run) Against Ovarian Cancer?? We sure are!! But remember – cancer never takes a break and our service and support to those in treatment MUST continue! This is why we need your help NOW! We have decided to continue the spirit of our annual event virtually. We will be recreating as much of the day’s celebration as we can online and invite you to join us in a show of support for each other. The Run/Walk will take place in any location at any time you would like. With your support, our goal is to continue our annual tradition of bringing the community together and to honor those we have lost and support those who are fighting.

Next year….we will be back bigger and better than ever!

So for now:

Sign up for our event and we will send you an event package including an Ovations Shirt, bumper stickers, bookmarks and more…everything you need to create your own mini-event at home. Celebrate on June 14th by holding your own Walk/Run at home, in your neighborhood, or with family and friends (when that is allowed) – and maintaining social distancing guidelines. Already Registered? No worries – we will be reaching out to you to get your information to mail your package!

Prior to the event:

Email us your short video (under 1 minute please) and/or a picture and story expressing why the WAR event matters to you and your connection to the ovarian cancer cause. We will be posting these on Facebook page to get the momentum going.

After the event:
Post and/or email us pictures of you participating in the walk that we can upload on our Facebook page – we love “landmark” photos and always love to see folks sporting their Ovations for the Cure gear!

Everything can be mailed to susan@ovationsforthecure.org

The 2020 Ephrata Mounts baseball team is continuing to join the fight against “The Silent Killer”, Ovarian Cancer, in an effort to raise awareness of this deadly disease. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 21,750 women in the United States will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer this year; and that about 13,940 women will lose their battle with this deadly disease. Ovarian cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.

To advance research for a cure, the Mounts baseball program is once again partnering with Ovations, a non-profit organization aimed at taking a stand against Ovarian Cancer. This year, the team and M.O.M. (Mothers of Mounts) will host an Indoor Corn Hole Tournament fundraiser at the Ephrata Middle School (February 21-22) with a portion of all proceeds going directly to Ovations.

To show your support for this year’s cause, Corn Hole Tournament participants are encouraged to wear teal. Teal shirts, bearing the logo above, will also be available for purchase during tournament weekend. Please help us join the fight by participating in this year’s event. Details on how to register your two-person team are available on mountshardball.com.

A PORTION OF THE CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO OVATIONS FOR THE CURE
