What began during a brainstorming session for a Master’s thesis soon turned into the run for her 5k Run and Friendship Walk. Motivated by her mom’s 10 year battle with cancer and inspired by her continued courage, Kelli Sargent partnered with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and organized the 2005 inaugural event. Since then, Kelli’s Mom, Nanci, has triumphantly crossed the finish line each year.
To date thousands of participants and supporters have increased ovarian cancer awareness and raised over $2 million for Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Institute. There is currently no reliable test for Ovarian Cancer so raising awareness about the disease and money for research is critical to saving lives.
WCRI, directed by Dr. Beth Karlan, is a multidisciplinary program aimed at accelerating bench-to-bedside cancer research through comprehensive, compassionate, cutting-edge cancer care.
