Every year, thousands of supporters walk for a great cause – raising funds for ovarian cancer research.
Across the country last year, more than 7 million steps were walked as part of these wonderful events hosted by supporters like you.
Join us and let’s walk towards a world where no woman dies of ovarian cancer.
What’s it all about?
Walk In Her Name is a fundraising walk that you organise, with the support of Ovarian Cancer Action. It’s a chance to honour a woman you love who has been affected by ovarian cancer, while helping to fund vital scientific research to benefit women everywhere. Beating ovarian cancer is about working together, and this is a fantastic opportunity to get friends and family together for a big team effort.
Summer is the perfect season to get outdoors and walk to raise funds for vital medical research. But you can hold a Walk In Her Name at any time, and in any location you choose. Why not get creative? Stroll along a riverside path, march through the city-centre, or hike into the mountains – the possibilities are endless! It doesn’t have to be a long walk, either. Make it as long and leisurely or short and invigorating as you want. It’s up to you.
Will you join the fight and organise a walk? Sign up today.
