Each year SLOCA hosts a series of events to raise funds to support our mission of raising awareness, supporting ovarian cancer survivors in our community and funding critical research.
Signature events include the Living Out Loud Gala & Auction and the Families Run for Ovarian Cancer (FamiliesROC) 5k and 1-Mile Run/ Walk. SLOCA also hosts a series of events in September, which is nationally recognized as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. September events include Ovarian Cancer Awareness Night at Busch Stadium with the St. Louis Cardinals, Teal Toes for SLOCA pedicure fundraiser and Cookie Baking for Survivors.
Survivor-specific events include the Survive & Shine Survivor Course, a day-long informational workshop with sessions on topics such as genetic testing, the latest clinical trials, intimacy after diagnosis and much more. Newly added in 2019 is the annual Toasting in Teal Survivor Brunch, which offers survivors and caregivers a chance to celebrate in a fun and informal environment.
