The Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance is bringing back its annual Time to Teal event this Mother’s Day in Downtown Ann Arbor.

The Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance is a nonprofit that hosts the Time to Teal event every Mother’s Day. The event helps spread information about ovarian cancer and consists of a 5k and a 1k Fun-Run.

It was started by the alliance’s co-founder as a way to honor her mother who passed from ovarian cancer. This will be the 12th year of the event.

Megan Neubauer is the executive director of the alliance.

“It’s such a powerful way of showing support for those who are directly impacted by ovarian cancer.”

Time to Teal also helps fundraise for the alliance. This year features Representative Debbie Dingell as a guest speaker. Resources will also be available at the event.

Registration and schedule information can be found on the alliance’s website.
