Tie Michigan Teal - Volunteers needed!

Tie Michigan Teal - Volunteers needed!

July 12, 2017

MIOCA is excited to announce its new state-wide ribbon tying campaign this September during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.  The Tie Michigan Teal campaign is an important effort to make the public aware of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Tie Michigan Teal  Coordinator, Marcia Gurche, indicates, "Given that there is no early diagnostic test for ovarian cancer, it is imperative that women be made aware of the symptoms. Educating Michigan communities is an important part of MIOCA's mission."

MIOCA will be tying teal ribbons in downtown areas of cities and towns throughout Michigan.  MIOCA will provide all of the materials, however, coordinators are needed to oversee the effort in each city/town.  Each coordinator will receive a Tie Michigan Teal  t-shirt as a token of our appreciation.  If interested in tying teal ribbons in a work place or on personal property, MIOCA will send a few cut ribbons to do that. Since not every city is a prime location for “tealing,” creativity and imagination are key for getting awareness out by using the ribbons. 

Please contact Marcia Gurche at mgurche@wowway.com for more information about Tie Michigan Teal  or to request materials.
