Wheels & Teal Car Show, 5K Raises Over $50K for Cancer

The 6th annual Ovarian Cancer Awareness event was held last Saturday in the Village of Rochester Hills.  This year's event featured a brand new name, Wheels & Teal, to help display the passion for cars in the Detroit area, the Motor City.  

Michelle Shepherd was very pleased with the turnout for this year's event as well as the amount of money they managed to raise for their efforts.  "This year, we estimate that we had about 600 walkers and runners and 46 cars at the event.  This event is the highest single day event in terms of revenue for the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance and this year we managed to raise over $50,000!"  

And the impact she believes the event has on the community is profound. "The feedback that I received was so positive.  The Wheels & Teal event gives the ovarian cancer community the opportunity to come together, to make some noise about ovarian cancer, but to also lift each other up.  It is important for those who lost someone, but it is also important for those surviving.  It helps them to see that other people are going through the same situation and that it is possible to overcome the ovarian cancer diagnosis."
