OUR EVENT HAS STARTED!
2020 GOLF TOURNAMENT UPDATE
Our first ever VIRTUAL event kicked-off at 8:00am on Saturday, August 1st, with 200 supporters participating on their own time, in their own place, at their own pace. If you were unable to register or participate, please consider making a donation as we continue to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer research and awareness during these challenging times.
For those of you who will be walking or running this week, we encourage folks to get festive and take pics! Wear teal, make signs, paint faces, bring the dogs and kids. Don't forget to share your photos and stories by posting on social (@shocfoundation #shocwalk) or at email@example.com
The SHOC Walk & Run is an opportunity for families, survivors, supporters, and businesses from surrounding communities to come together for a common cause. Let's celebrate the women who are fighting this disease. Let’s remember those who fought fiercely. And let’s stay healthy and safe while doing it.

SHOC's IMPACT IN THE LAB
JOIN OUR ACTION COMMITTEE
In late 2019, OHSU shared with the SHOC Foundation a 15-year Impact Report for our ongoing investment in the work of Dr. Tanja Pejovic. This allows Dr. Pejovic's lab to invest in discoveries that are leading to advancements and positive change in women with ovarian cancer.

WE DID IT AGAIN!
September 28, 2019 – Once again the SHOC Foundation was able to present its annual gift to Dr. Tanja Pejovic of OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute in late September during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The SHOC Board and Advisors took the opportunity to present a check while entertaining at our High Tea’l Survivors Tea held in downtown Portland at the Hotel deLuxe. Our guests were our honored survivors and their guests, and Dr. Pejovic and her team from OSHU. On this beautiful Saturday morning at High Noon we were excited to share one of our largest gifts to date of $100,000. This brings our 15-year gifted total to $1.1 million directly to the OHSU Gynecologic Research Lab under the direction of Dr. Pejovic. We are humbled in our thank you to all the amazing people that support the SHOC Foundation in our mission to end ovarian cancer as we know it.
