Teal Trek to Stomp Out Ovarian Cancer
Did you know that every 37 minutes a woman in the US dies from ovarian cancer? We didn’t, until we became involved with The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Arizona (OCAZ), a charitable group of volunteers, survivors and community leaders with a mission to conquer ovarian cancer in Arizona.
With knowledge of the event from our trusted partner, Douglas Allred Company, Willmeng recently acted a sponsor of the organization’s Teal Trek, a day full of food, music and activities in an effort to raise funds that may someday help find a cure. According to President James Murphy, Willmeng supports the cause because, “QUOTE.” What is the reason behind Willmeng’s support of this organization? How long has Douglas Allred participated? How long have they wanted Willmeng to become involved?
Seventy-three Willmeng employees attended the event in a commitment to contribute to the cause that helps elevate ovarian cancer awareness, survivorship and care. Willmeng will always support organizations that are passionate about saving women’s lives.
The event featured a silent auction, raffle, sand volley ball, and a men and women’s stiletto race. “Quote from team member who attended.” Every Willmeng team member in attendance wore teal socks and shirts to further promote the cause, and was the events balloon sponsor. Over ____ balloons were released in memory of lost loved ones.
OCAZ empowers and inspires survivors by offering tools that improve quality of life and by advocating for increased research funding. Ovarian cancer is most treatable if diagnosed as soon as possible. Visit www.ocaz.org to read about the symptoms and to find out how you can join the fight against ovarian cancer.
