Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation announces a new format for Birmingham’s favorite indoor event for research, MOVE TOWARD A CURE. MOVE TOWARD A CURE is a 3-hour event designed to engage and encourage more people in the community to participate. You don’t have to be a runner or athlete or an ovarian cancer survivor or family member – each one of us can make a difference in the lives of many.

MOVE TOWARD A CURE is a meaningful and high energy group indoor event that places participants in an open space together sweating and cheering for a common cause – a cure for Ovarian Cancer. Participants will enjoy experiencing the dynamic environment created when people come together to raise funds for the important cause of supporting ovarian cancer research. All funds raised from the event will be given for Ovarian Cancer research in Birmingham.

How to get involved?
The community can get involved in a number of ways, including participating for 1, 2, or 3 hours by walking/running, engaging in a personal training challenge, riding a stationary bike or a mixture of all 3! You can MOVE TOWARD A CURE as an individual or as a team. We encourage you to bring your friends and family to the event to cheer you on or have them sleep in as you MOVE TOWARD A CURE.

Registration: Participants can register as individuals or as part of a team and can participate for any increment between 1 and 3 hours. Each participant pays a tax-deductible registration fee and pledges to raise funds for ovarian cancer research.

Benefits:  Every dollar raised from Move Toward a Cure goes to further research and awareness of ovarian cancer. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of so many.

Registered participants can take advantage of free spin classes prior to the event at the Levite Jewish Community Center. Optional free group training rides will also be offered on February 12th at 12:30pm (1 hour) & 26th at 12:30pm (2 hours) as well as assistance and support to achieve fundraising goals.

MISSION:
Each year in the United States more than 21,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and about 13,000 women die of the disease. There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer and as a result, only 19% of women are diagnosed in the early stages.  Ovarian cancer is known as the disease that whispers, so we must listen carefully!  When ovarian cancer is detected early, before it has spread beyond the ovaries, more than 90% of women will survive longer than five years.

Every dollar raised goes to further research and awareness of ovarian cancer. Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of so many. Through this event, it is also our hope to raise awareness and to inspire others to take action.
