OC Challenge Events
Can you help us fund South Australia’s first Ovarian Cancer Nurse?
We’ve begun the planning of and are calling on all South Australians to reach our goal of funding our first Ovarian Cancer Nurse. This is support that women diagnosed with the disease so desperately need and understand the impact this type of care and support can have on patients and their families. You can set up your own supporter page through the Everyday Hero website in just 3 steps. Choose OC Challenge Incorporated as your charity ‘in the search field’, proceed to create your own fundraising page, then share with friends, colleagues and family to join you. That’s all it takes to become one of our heroes and ambassadors! https://www.everydayhero.com/au/
OR if Facebook is your preferred social media platform, you can raise funds for OC Challenge Incorporated by adding a donate button to your post, begin fundraising and share with all your friends. We are a registered charitable organisation with the Pay Pal Giving Fund Australia (no fees).

We acknowledged Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month at the Palais Hotel Semaphore on Sunday Funday 2nd February 2020 2pm sharing our excitement in funding Australia’s first Ovarian Cancer Nurse in our own state! This was an amazing success. Thank you to all our supporters. You will be pleased to know we raised nearly $9,000 toward funding our nurse.
Our Regional Event 13th & 14th September 2019
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 funding an ovarian cancer 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
