The popular annual event, Unleash the SHE is just around the corner here in Rochester, Minnesota. Make sure to get signed up to participate to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer and raise money for the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA).

What is Unleash the SHE

Unleash the SHE is a 5k or 10k race that, as I mentioned earlier, raises awareness of ovarian cancer and money to fight ovarian cancer, so obviously a good cause. Also, SHE stands for Strength, Health, Empowerment.

There are different races you can be involved in: the 5k walk or run women-only race, the 10k women-only race, or the 5k run or walk Support the SHE co-ed race. If the kids want to participate there's also a 1k Kids Fun Run.

When is Unleash the SHE

The Unleash the SHE races are coming up Sunday, October 24th at Mayo High School. The 10k will begin at 9 AM, the 5k run begins at 9:10 AM, the 5k walk begins at 9:25 AM, and the Kids Fun Run starts at 10:20 AM.

After the races are complete there will also be special guest speakers from Mayo and MOCA. They'll begin at 10:30 with a survivor presentation at 10:35. Finally, the awards ceremony for race winners will be at 10:55 AM.
