About This Event
Please join us for our First Annual Hope In OK 5k & Survivor/Fun Walk to raise awareness and support for those who have been diagnosed with any form of gynecological cancer. Both events are open to all ages both male and female. The 5k race is being held on a USATF sanctioned course and will be professionally timed by DG Productions. The survivor/fun walk will be an untimed event and will be done around Redhawks Field at Bricktown. Hope in Oklahoma's mission is to offer women HOPE and to help them, their families and friends cope with their cancer diagnosis by uniting them with the medical community, providing education and support and encouraging them to maintain a positive attitude. To educate the women of Oklahoma regarding early signs and symptoms of gynecologic cancer, resulting in early detection. Our focus is to support, educate, and encourage all women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer. It is important that they “never give up HOPE”! Everyone has the same initial thoughts of FEAR, SHOCK and CONFUSION. Have HOPE! You can get through this! There WILL be many wonderful blessings and positive changes occur through your journey. YES, life will go on; however, life will never be the same.
