The 26th Annual Sprint for Life 5K Run/Walk will take place on May 6, 2023.
Ovarian Cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers, according to the National Cancer Institute. Unfortunately, because there is no screening or early detection test available and ovarian cancer symptoms are subtle, only about 25% of ovarian cancer tumors are detected before they have progressed to an advanced stage. On Race Day, survivors, their families and friends, businesses and MD Anderson employees come together to achieve two goals: raise funds for research and increase awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms.
