The Cause

The Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation was formed to raise awareness and bolster education about ovarian cancer signs and symptoms in an effort to promote early intervention. The organization also funds research with events like the Save the O’s 5K and other successful fund-raising ventures. To date, they have raised more than $1,400,000 for ovarian cancer research.

Save the O’s is hosted by the Greystone Golf & Country Club in loving memory of Lori Johnson.
