Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my personal fundraising page for HOM Teal Strides for Ovarian Cancer! When you support the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA) through a donation to my team (Wetzel's Warriors), you help fund critical research and programming for women and their families impacted by ovarian cancer.
I was honored to have been elected to the MOCA Board of Directors in May 2015 (and re-elected in May 2018) and have been able to see firsthand (as Joy did when she was a Board member) the impact that MOCA has made in the fight against ovarian cancer in Minnesota. I am also involved with Men of MOCA, an organization that provides support, volunteer opportunities and fund-raising activities for males who have been impacted by ovarian cancer. Earlier this year, MOCA awarded $775,000 to researchers at the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic. In addition, MOCA awarded $100,000 to national researchers seeking an early detection test. Our total research awards to date is $8 million. We would like our 2019 number to be even higher than this year's $875,000.
Thank you in advance for donating in memory of Joy to help build awareness of ovarian cancer, fund research for early detection and treatment and offer support and encouragement to those suffering from this disease. Making a tax-deductible donation is fast and easy - just visit my personal fundraising page to make a gift online. Or, if you prefer, you can send your contribution to MOCA at 4604 Chicago Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55407.
If possible, please also consider joining Wetzel's Warriors in walking or running in this 19th annual event on Saturday, September 15, at Rosland Park in Edina!
Thank you for making a difference in the fight against ovarian cancer.
