Hops for Hope

12:00 pm

In September 2018 my Mother, Melissa Davis (54), was unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. I am organizing a fundraising benefit for Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA) to not only raise money for those affected by this disease, but to also bring awareness to our community that this is a silent killer that all women need to be aware of and take precautions against. Our efforts cannot go into effect without the collective help from those in our community.

OVARIAN CANCER RESEARCH ALLIANCE is the largest global charity funding ovarian cancer research. In the U.S., OCRA is the largest non-government funder of ovarian cancer research. Since 1998, they have awarded top scientists at 73 leading medical centers, 297 grants for ovarian cancer research and related programs: an investment of over $80 million. Every day, OCRA-funded scientists are improving women’s lives by finding new ways to prevent ovarian cancer, developing better methods to treat it, and pioneering pathways to cure this disease.

HOW YOU CAN HELP. The fundraising event for OCRA will be hosted at Alexandria Brewing Company in Alexandria, KY on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 from 12 pm to 3 pm. You can help in any of the ways listed below.

– Ad Space. Ad spaces will be sold at $200 for a small logo, $300 for a large logo. Your business’s logo will go on the back of the event t-shirts as well as any promotional materials. Monetary donations can be collected by mailing a check, or via this website (super easy!).

– Gifts for raffle. These can be in the form of gift cards, goods, services, etc. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for $5 each and drop their tickets in the drawings of various gift baskets. Baskets should be valued at a minimum of $50.

– Auction items. These are higher-value items that will be included in the live auction. We are only accepting 5 high-value items/collections, and these must be valued above $250. Businesses that donate a high-value item or collection will also receive a small ad space on the back of the shirts and in promotional materials.

– Resources. This can be in the form of volunteers, food or beverages, materials such as brochures or flyers, decorations, balloons, etc.

Join us for the 2.5 mile walk at Sawyer Point!!!!

For more than 30 years, Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event – has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives.

Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF. The event harnesses the power of people with a shared vision and encourages collaboration, team building, and leadership, as we collectively take steps to find a cure

Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy. Nearly every CF drug was made possible by the Foundation and because of funds raised from Great Strides, people with CF are living longer, healthier lives and pursuing their dreams.

We are working every day to build on this incredible momentum, and we won’t stop until there is a cure for all people living with CF.

Sign up to walk in Great Strides today and join us as we take steps towards a cure.

The time is now. Together, we can cross the finish line.
