Baylor College of Medicine and Ovarian Cancer Research Fund are hosting Ovarian Cycle Houston.

The event takes place on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. at L.A. Fitness Med Center located at 2130 West Holcombe Blvd. The goal is to raise funds to support ovarian cancer research. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Baylor’s Woman to Woman program, which provides counseling for women diagnosed with any type of gynecologic cancer.

“Research is critical to ensure that we ultimately beat cancer for future generations. Yet, we also need support programs to help those patients who are in the fight today. This event addresses both of those needs: supporting research through Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and the Baylor Woman to Woman Program,” said Dr. Marian Yvette Williams-Brown, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Baylor and a member of the Dan L Duncan Cancer Center, an NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Participants must pay a $50 registration fee, which includes a t-shirt and gift bag. You may register as an individual or team riders. Teams can be created for groups of three and each individual will cycle for one hour.

After registering, each participant will be given their own fundraising page to personalize and use for fundraising. Those who raise over $250 are eligible to win prizes.
