DATES FOR FUNDRAISING:  UNTIL OCTOBER 15.  HIGHEST FUNDRAISING TEAMS WILL BE ANNOUNCED OCTOBER 22.


MILLION DOLLAR YEAR IN 2021!!


This research affects women around the world, not just New England!


THIS YEAR WE WANT TO GET OUR TOTAL DONATIONS OVER $1,000,000!!!  


LET'S MAKE UP FOR THE MONEY WE WERE NOT ABLE TO RAISE IN 2020~~


We need to raise money so that Dr. Matulonis and her team at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute can continue their lifesaving research.


Our GGP Family has always risen to the occasion—we know you will take this and run with it!!


HIGHEST FUNDRAISING TEAMS will be recognized once again this year. We will recognize our highest fundraising team with their team name on our GGP Rock. We will have extra awards this year for our TOP FIVE highest fundraising teams.  Due to COVID restrictions, we are not sure we will be able to visit Dana-Farber for a VIP Night so we will have awards to send out to your teams.


GIRLYGIRL'S STORY: 


girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. started simply as a discussion between two friends over a cup of coffee in March of 2009.  Jill Di-Tommaso was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in February of 2008. She and her wonderful friend, Laura Smith, have been dedicated to raising awareness about this devastating disease.


Together they founded the girlygirl P.A.R.T.S. 5K Run/Walk for Ovarian Cancer to raise funds for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for the research of a pre-screening tool for ovarian cancer.


Jill passed away on December 27, 2015 after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer. We need your help now more than ever!


Over the last 10 years,  we are proud to say that we have donated over $900,000 to the Ovarian Research Fund directed by Dr. Ursula Matulonis at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  Dr. Ursula Matulonis is the medical director of gynecologic oncology.  


C'mon out boys!  Manly men run and walk with us for all the women in their lives.  


Grab everyone you know and fight for your mothers, sisters, aunts, daughters and nieces!  The time is now!!
