Events for ovarian cancer awareness month in Virginia, Maryland & DC

by on August 28, 2012

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month here in the U.S., and that means that I have lots of upcoming events to share with you!  They won’t all fit in one post, so I hope you don’t mind if I break it up a bit. Today, I’m sharing the first installment – events in Virginia, Maryland & DC:

  • Frozen yogurt for a cause? You lucky DC folks can get a treat while raising awareness. On September 7, the Pinkberry in Georgetown will donate 20 percent of its proceeds to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (OCNA) – all you have to do is bring in this flyer!
  • There’s another fun event coming up on September 8 in Arlington, Virginia – the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) Drag Show Fundraiser and Social!  The Arlington Gay and Lesbian Alliance has teamed up with NOCC for this event, and it sounds like a blast.  (Ed. Note: One of my best friends is going and I would be too if I were still living in the area 😦 – Marcy)
  • In the Richmond area? Swing by Teal ‘N Tee on September 16 at Bogey’s Sports Park.
  • For those in the northern Virginia/DC area, you can participate in the inaugural A Taste of Northern Virginia NOCC Golf Tournament on September 29 (followed by a wine tasting reception… yum).
  • I didn’t forget you, Marylanders. (Is that what I should call you?) Join the  3rd Annual 5K Run/3K Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer in Annapolis on September 30.
  • If you’re interested in taking in a show, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance is the official charity partner for the fall tour of Menopause the Musical.  Find out if there’s a show near you – use the code TEAL when ordering your tickets, and $5 will be donated to the Alliance.
  • Short on time?  Nothing near you? Never fear! You can participate in a virtual walk from the comfort of your own home. Check out Teal Strides Across America.

That’s all for today – I’ll be back with more events soon.  As always, if you have any events you’d like us to share, please let us know!
