BLOG: An updated name, but the same great event


8.26.13 As you may have noticed, MOCA’s Silent No More Walk/Run for Ovarian Cancer has an added name to the title this year – it’s now the HOM Silent No More Walk/Run for Ovarian Cancer, thanks to the generosity and support of our new title sponsor, HOM Furniture.

With the help of a committed volunteer and survivor involved in our community, MOCA worked proactively to develop a partnership with HOM as the title sponsor of our biggest annual event. We are excited about the opportunity to raise the profile of this already amazing event and widen our audience so more survivors’ families and community members know about MOCA.

We’ve been thrilled to be the beneficiary of so much publicity that HOM has brought to this event.  No doubt you’ve seen ads in local magazines, the Pioneer Press supplement just this past weekend and the electronic billboard ads popping up all around the metro.  We’ve already heard from survivors who have found out about MOCA thanks to those billboards!  HOM has helped raise the profile of this event, this disease and MOCA.

The name has been updated, but rest assured, MOCA’s largest event hasn’t changed at all.  It is still run by MOCA staff and volunteers.  This event is still for you, the survivors, the family members and the community.  And as always, it is a celebration of survivors and an opportunity for MOCA to make a difference with the money that we raise for research and programs.

If you haven’t registered yet, do so today! Invite your friends and family, and start a team. We are anticipating our biggest and best event yet. I hope you’ll be at Rosland Park in Edina to join us for it, on Saturday, Sept. 7.

See you there!
