Join us for the 11th annual Families Run for Ovarian Cancer ROC Star 5k and 1-mile walk/ run! The event takes place on Sunday, October 8, 2017 at Soldier's Memorial in beautiful downtown St. Louis. 

The Families Run for Ovarian Cancer ROC Star event began in 2006 by the Jorgensen family as their wife and mother, Brenda, fought her own battle with ovarian cancer. Sadly, she lost that battle in 2011 but the event continues to honor her spirit by raising funds for ovarian cancer research and ongoing awareness programs.
