Join the Walk With Women

Show your solidarity and Walk With Women this February to raise funds for vital ovarian cancer research.

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological cancer, taking the life of one woman every eight hours. With no early detection test and very few treatment options, research is essential to improving survival outcomes.

The OCRF is the leading non-government funder of ovarian cancer research in Australia. We fund innovative ovarian cancer research with the potential to have the greatest impact for the greatest number of women and girls. The money you raise has a direct impact on the breadth of research we can fund, and on the time we can fund them for. The more you raise, the more grants we can offer to Australia’s best ovarian cancer research scientists, who are taking the fight to ovarian cancer in the lab.
