BLOG: A reason to Unleash the SHE for MOCA

9.30.15 This October, more than 1,000 women will be running to make a difference with MOCA at Lake Normandale in Bloomington. Lisa Rock is a MOCA supporter and an ovarian cancer survivor – she tells us why she’ll be Unleashing her SHE! 

On Sunday, Oct. 11, I’m going to take part in an event that supports MOCA – joining more than 1,000 other women in a united cause.

My family and I will be running and walking to make a difference in the Athleta Unleash the SHE 5K/10K for MOCA. Because I’m an ovarian cancer survivor, this is a cause that is incredibly dear to me – and the amazing survivors I’ve met through MOCA. 

MOCA is an organization that can be proud of all it’s work as it supports women with ovarian cancer in their darkest hour. MOCA brings light along with hope on their new journey.

I am grateful for MOCA – giving me the ability to call or connect with someone when I was completely frightened and beside myself with fear. MOCA not only helped me. My husband has attended meetings and enjoyed meeting other caregivers, as he too was carrying a burden and needed to connect with others.

I hope you consider joining by walking or running with me. Whether it’s your first 10K – or you’d just like to walk the 5K, you can take part. Men are able to participate this year for the first time, as well, in the untimed “Support the SHE” 5K walk! $5 of every registration fee is donated to MOCA – and many people donate or fundraise more to support this amazing organization. 

Register now here – or consider volunteering for MOCA by contacting MOCA’s Events Manager Lauren Donna at ldonna@mnovarian.org. Until Monday, Oct. 5 – use the code “MOCALOVE” to get $10 off your registration and an additional $5 donation to MOCA!

Your support means so much to the survivors, family and friends impacted by ovarian cancer.
