Swedish SummeRun & Walk
The SummeRun & Walk is an annual fundraising event to benefit the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research. Thanks to underwriting by Swedish Medical Center, every single dollar raised through the Swedish SummeRun will support the work of the Rivkin Center.
We run because when caught in its earliest stages, survival rates for women with ovarian cancer can be as high as 90 percent.
We run because the long-term disease-free survival rate for advanced ovarian cancer is only 10%.
We run because, although ovarian cancer comprises 3% of all women’s cancers, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of women’s cancer deaths.
We run because no single institution is capable of discovering a cure for ovarian cancer on its own. It will take the greater scientific community of exceptional researchers, working together to eradicate this disease.
We run because we support ovarian cancer research in honor of our wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters.
