The Ovarian Cancer Walk | Run is our largest fundraising event and as well as raising awareness, it is responsible for raising a substantial amount of the income Target Ovarian Cancer needs to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research, and provide much-needed support for women with ovarian cancer. We do not receive any government funding and rely on voluntary donations and sponsorship raised from events to continue our work. We must do much more than just cover the cost of the event and we rely on all of our participants to raise the minimum pledge as well as those who exceed it.
If you’d like some tips on how to raise £100, you can find some here. Or contact our friendly team who can help.
Children are not required to raise the minimum sponsorship amount but we encourage them to raise as much as they can.
