Mayor's 27th Annual 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer!


More than 20,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, and approximately 15,000 women die annually from the disease. Unfortunately, most cases are diagnosed in their later stages when the prognosis is poor. However, if diagnosed and treated early, when the cancer is confined to the ovary, the five-year survival rate is over 90 percent. That is why it is imperative that the early signs and symptoms of the disease are recognized, not only by women, but also by their families and the medical community.

Registration opens at 8 a.m. on the lawns of 66 Main St. $35.00 per walk/run. Race begins at 10 a.m.
