MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and that is why you may notice buildings lit up in teal. To show support, the IDS Center, Foshay Tower and the 35W Bridge are all showing teal colors Tuesday.
The lights are just the beginning of a series of events, including the HOM Teal Strides for Ovarian Cancer walk and run.
On Saturday, Sept. 12, Edina’s Roseland Park is hosting HOM Teal Strides for Ovarian Cancer.
Participants can walk or run to help raise funds for ovarian cancer research, raise awareness for the disease and give support to those affected by it.
The event includes a 5K or a 2K run/walk around Lake Cornelia and a Kids’ Fun Run as well.
The money supports the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
WCCO’s Kim Johnson will emcee the event.
