T.E.A.L. hosts 15th annual walk and run for ovarian cancer awareness

About 700 people participated in T.E.A.L.’s 15th annual Walk and 5k run on Saturday in Prospect Park to spread ovarian cancer awareness, raise funds to promote a cure and support survivors and their families. 
T.E.A.L. stands for Tell Every Amazing Lady About Ovarian Cancer. It’s run by the Louisa M. McGregor Ovarian Cancer Foundation, which was founded in 2009.  
Families of survivors and those affected by the disease, such as actor Steve Buscemi, honored their loved ones at the event. The actor spoke about his late wife who died from the illness.  
T.E.A.L. will be hosting more events throughout September. The next walk/run will be in September in Connecticut.  
According to the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cancer that kills women.
