2020 GEAUX TEAL WALK Virtual walk

For immediate release: Monday, July 21, 2020

We know that many of you have eagerly awaited the announcement of our plans since we postponed the 2020 Geaux Teal Walk in March, and we are thankful for your continued patience and understanding. Due to the continued effects and uncertainty of Covid-19 on our community, the Geaux Teal committee has made the difficult decision to transition the 2020 Geaux Teal walk to a virtual event. 

 

The 2020 Virtual Geaux Teal Walk will be held on Saturday, September 19th. We value the health and safety of all of our friends in the Geaux Teal community, and transitioning to a virtual walk will provide all participants a safe environment to celebrate and honor the women in our lives who have been affected by ovarian cancer.

 

During this time of physical distancing, we have a unique opportunity to join together and create community with our virtual walk. We are excited to host our eight annual walk in September which is the nationally designated month for Ovarian Cancer Awareness.
