Mayor's 5K Walk to End the Silence of Ovarian Cancer Set for Sunday, September 23, at West Orange Town Hall
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 • 11:13am
The sixth annual Mayor's 5K Run to end the silence of Ovarian Cancer will take place on Sunday, September 23, at 8:00 am, beginning on the steps of West Orange Town Hall, 66 Main Street. In what has become one of the premier events in Northern New Jersey that brings awareness of ovarian cancer, hundreds will walk and run to support that effort, as well as improving the survival rate of women with ovarian cancer. The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC), in conjunction with the township of West Orange and the support of the Downtown West Orange Alliance and the Maureen Fund, will also be on hand to provide information about Ovarian cancer, most importantly its symptoms.
Shari Susskind, a West Orange resident and ovarian cancer survivor, along with Denise Esposito of the DWOA, were instrumental in getting township and organizational support for the cause.
