Geaux Teal is a relative newcomer to Baton Rouge, but in a little more than a year of existence, the organization has already made big strides in educating women and spreading awareness about ovarian cancer. Geaux Teal, which was started in January 2013, has partnered with the LSU softball team to “Strikeout Ovarian Cancer” and held its inaugural Geaux Teal Ovarian Cancer Walk, which raised more than $17,000.
Geaux Teal will host its annual Ovarian Cancer Walk at 10:00 AM Saturday at Tiger Park at LSU. Event day will include a short program prior to the start of the walk, a customizable course suited for walking or running, an outdoor concert, and an exciting LSU Softball matchup against Texas A&M.
The Living with Cancer blog caught up with Geaux Teal’s Lauren Taylor a few months ago to discuss the organization’s mission and how it’s bringing ovarian cancer awareness to Baton Rouge women.
