Dozens Cycle for ovarian cancer awareness

News

 Newk’s Cares along with Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance and other organizations hosted a cycle event to continue ovarian cancer awareness.

Anyone who came out to support the  cause could participate in a 45 minute cycling workout session.

While organziers says the goal of this event is finding a cure for ovarian cancer–it’s also to shed light on the symptoms that come along with the disease. 

Every dime raised today will go straight to research funding.

We spoke with the co-founder of Newk’s Cares who was diagnosed back in 2013.

This event hits close to home for the Mississippi State Softball Team–after losing one of their players–Alex Wilcox–this past year to ovarian cancer.  Members of the team were there in her honor.
