Only 20 percent of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in early, more curable stages. In an effort to raise awareness about this condition, Atlantic Health System is participating in the 28th Annual Mayor’s 5K Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer. Those who join our team will get to experience a USATF-certified grand prix course, as well as enjoy an awards ceremony, raffle prizes, refreshments and photo opportunities with ovarian cancer survivors. The event takes place on September 23 at 10:00am on 66 Main Street in West Orange, NJ. Use the Atlantic Health System team name when signing up and be sure to stop by our Carol G. Simon Cancer Center booth on race day. Register now or call 973-971-4974.
