Jodi’s 9th Annual Race for Awareness, June 9th at City Park!
Proud to sponsor another race that means so much to us. Come celebrate the survivors, honor the loved ones we’ve lost, and help spread the awareness of ovarian cancer!
Join us, Saturday, June 9 at 7 AM – 10 AM, at City Park – 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, Colorado 80205 for Jodi’s Race!
“2018 marks the 9th Annual Jodi’s Race! It’s a day filled with beauty and inspiration. Come make some memories with us!
We celebrate survivors with a lovely Survivor’s Breakfast where they pick up one strand of teal beads for every year since diagnosis and a great goody bag! They get the royal treatment in every way!
Jodi’s Race also honors those we have lost to ovarian cancer by placing 220 wreaths at the finish line of the race, symbolizing the number of Colorado women lost to ovarian cancer each year. Attendees are encouraged to create a wreath for their loved ones and place it along the finish line. We also have a memorial wall where messages of remembrance are written by those who have lost someone to ovarian cancer.
Every participant receives a teal egg at the finish line that contains a prize! It could be a teal pin, wristband, Starbucks card, free Zoo or Museum of Nature and Science admission…you never know what you’ll get!
Jodi’s Race for Awareness™ was the inspiration of Jodi Brammeier, a Colorado native, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008 at age 41. She was unaware of the vague and often misdiagnosed symptoms. Since there is no accurate screening test for ovarian cancer, Jodi made it her mission to raise awareness of the risk factors and symptoms through this 5K and 1 mile run/walk. She believed she would have caught the cancer earlier had she only been more aware of the signs and symptoms.”
