“Dear Frank. Thank you for your continued support of the St. John's Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. This event would not be possible without the support and dedication of our loyal supporters like you.
The Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope is the largest and most powerful event of its kind in the country. Last year, more than 10,500 people in over 45 communities across the country raised over $2.2 million to help overcome ovarian cancer. The St. John's volunteer committee for the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope would like to take this time to thank you for all your support during the past year. Your wonderful donations helped raise money for our annual auction, held during the walk event. Our goal for this year was $40,000 dollars and we exceeded this amount. The generosity of companies like yourself are always there for support.
Ovarian Cancer Canada Is the only national charitable organization dedicated to overcoming the country's most fatal women's cancer. In Canada, 17,000 women are currently living with ovarian cancer and each year 2,600 women are newly diagnosed with the disease. Sadly, 70% of women will succumb to ovarian cancer within five years of their diagnosis. There is no screening test for ovarian cancer and symptoms are vague and often go unnoticed.
Please join us as we walk for HER in 2016 by aligning yourself and your company with this important cause. All net proceeds from the walk will enable Ovarian Cancer Canada to further our mission to fund ovarian cancer research and provide education and support programs and resources.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
