Run Like a Girl is an event that promotes a healthy lifestyle while fighting ovarian cancer. RLAG, conceived by Mark Junkermann who lost his mother to ovarian cancer at the young age of 21, has expanded into a series of events throughout the country. RLAG helps raise money and awareness for the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation while educating women about ovarian cancer signs and symptoms, as well as encouraging both girls and women to be active.
The mission of the HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation is to eliminate ovarian cancer by promoting Health, Empowerment, Research, and Awareness. See more at: www.herafoundation.org
HERA Women’s Cancer Foundation, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, funds and inspires scientific researchers who focus on solving the ovarian cancer problem. HERA seeks collaborative partnerships that broadly expand research, awareness, and education. At the heart of HERA is the underlying premise that women need to have the knowledge and the confidence to fully understand and advocate for the direction of their health care. HERA accomplishes all of the above by offering community events that center on increasing self-esteem and confidence for all participants while raising funds for critical research grants.
