Chasing the Cure for Ovarian Cancer is a non-profit organization holding events each September to fight ovarian cancer

We were able to donate over $60,000 in the last 7 years to research & clinical trials in the fight against ovarian cancer!

Chasing the Cure for Ovarian Cancer is a supporter and partner with the Michigan Ovarian Cancer AllicanceIn From 2015-2017 we partnered with the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance. All proceeds from our events were used here in Michigan to advocate for research, support public awareness and help people recognize early signs and symptoms of this silent but deadly disease. Learn more about MIOCA on the "Charities" page here on our website.

Due to limited time and resources, organizers have determined that the time has come to discontinue the annual run and other events. While there is no doubt the cause is still exceptionally important, our ability to continue organizing an increasingly beneficial road race and other events has been maxed out. The community, sponsors and participants have all been extremely supportive and we thank them for 7 years of Chasing the Cure!
