The 7th Annual Stiletto Sprint

September 16, 2017 | 8:00 am - 10:30 am

This year in the United States, over 21,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer, a disease often called the silent killer because symptoms can be so vague. Nearly 70 percent of women are diagnosed at an advanced stage. These women will face the fight of their lives. Join hundreds of women (and men!) of all ages in the 7th Annual Stiletto Sprint benefiting the Carolinas Ovarian Cancer Fund in support of Levine Cancer Institute. This event was inspired by an incredible group of ovarian cancer patients named the Teal Magnolias. One hundred percent of net proceeds stay local to support research conducted by Levine Cancer Institute’s physicians to advance the treatment and early diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Funds also support patient education and community outreach programs. 

FUNDRAISING

The main purpose of the Stiletto Sprint is to raise funds and awareness for ovarian cancer in our region. Our event goal is to raise over $100,000, and with your help, we can do it!
