Gail Parkins Ovarian Cancer Walk and 5K Run
October 27 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Join Women in Law for the second annual Gail Parkins Ovarian Cancer Walk and 5K Run. We will be walking and running to raise money in support of ovarian cancer research at Duke University Medical Center. This year, Women in Law is able to sponsor a limited number of students who would like to participate in the walk with us. If you are interested in a student sponsorship, contact WIL at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10/12/18.
After raising over $1000 in 2017, Women in Law increased its goal for 2018 to $1500. If you are interested in supporting Women in Law’s effort with a tax deductible donation for this cause, please register to participate or make a donation.Register or Make a Donation

While the Duke Ovarian Cancer Research Program is partially funded by the National Cancer Institute and other agencies, money raised at the annual ovarian awareness walk funds much-needed researchers and laboratory equipment. The program’s goal is to reduce ovarian cancer deaths through improvements in early detection, treatment, and prevention.
