The volunteer team attended one of our SA Regional Events last year in September at Riverland Field Days - Barmera Our next SA Regional Event will be: Eyre Peninsula Field Days in Cleve 11th - 13th August 2020

All our volunteers were in Barmera, raising awareness at the annual Riverland Field Days which attracts 15k people over the 2 days.  What a great experience where we spread the word of the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer and spoke to over 300 people.  Many are currently fighting the disease, some have won the battle and some wanted to share the stories of mums, sisters and friends they have lost. We had both health professionals as well as women living with Ovarian Cancer on site, sharing our exciting vision of sponsoring our ovarian cancer care nurse in South Australia.  Pictured below is our fabulous 'Teal Team' setting up and wrapping up a great weekend.

Sunday Mail City Bay Fun Run 15th September 2019

The annual Sunday Mail City Bay Fun Run in Adelaide, South Australia was on Sunday, 15 September 2019. We were a little busy to attend this year as the weekend clashed with our regional event.  A huge thank you to Jenny Lock who supported Ovarian Cancer South Australia by entering as a participant and raising funds for OC Challenge as your charity. A big shout out to all her supporters who donated via this link.  It's not too late to help Jenny who has far exceeded her goal of $500 : https://citybay2019.everydayhero.com/au/in-honour-of-amanda-oc-challenge
