Description

Are you ready to ROC with us? Join us for the 15th annual Families Run for Ovarian Cancer ROC Star Run/ Walk! The ROC Star event was started in 2006 by the Jorgensen family as their wife, mother and Nana, Brenda, fought her own battle with ovarian cancer. Sadly, she lost that battle in 2011 but the event continues to honor her spirit and to raise funds for ovarian cancer research and ongoing awareness programs through St. Louis Ovarian Cancer Awareness. 


Participants can register for a timed 5k or a 1-mile fun run, or if you can't join us in person you can ROC from Home! All event registration includes a limited edition long-sleeve shirt for all participants (while supplies last).


The event is family-friendly and will include music by TKO DJs and will be emceed by our friend, Y98's Julie Tristan. Flu shots will be provided on-site by Walgreens for those would would like to get one (ages 12+) and there will be snacks as well as complimentary coffee and hot cocoa from Coffee Culture, cool treats from Cool Times Ice Cream Truck and of course the beloved Bubble Bus will be in attendance! There will also be roaming selfie stations - so be on the lookout to snag your event selfie! New this year, local musician Katarra will be performing our National Anthem to kick off the race start. Don't miss out!


Survivor Ceremony 
To recognize and honor our ovarian cancer survivors in attendance during our ceremony we will call each survivor by name and as they come forward we will share a flower and applaud them. All registered survivors in attendance should make their way to the stage for the ceremony and remain afterwards for a group photo.


Honor & Memory Wall
The event will host an "In Honor and Memory" wall where participants can attach a photo, write a message, or share an inspiring quote and more. SLOCA will provide the materials but feel free to bring photos. Please note, materials affixed to the memory wall cannot be returned.
