Andy's story

"It took me a year to find a challenge that I felt was far enough out of my comfort zone. A challenge I could use to catch people's attention whilst personally pushing what I believe I might be capable of."

We also have our very own Target Ovarian Cancer Strava Club. Strava is a great fitness app which you can use to track your training progress and fitness. Join our group to connect with, and get to know, your fellow Target Ovarian Cancer challengers, see how each other are getting on, share training and fundraising successes, or even arrange to train together. 

Transform the futures of more than 25,000 women in the UK who are living with ovarian cancer by signing up for three or more fundraising events within 12 months. You could combine a local running event with a summer party for friends and family, with joining hundreds of others at The Ovarian Cancer Walk | Run!

Whichever events you choose, if you can complete three in one year, we will send you a special TAKE OVAR medal and certificate to mark your achievement!
