Jodi’s Race for Awareness has become an annual fund raising event benefiting COCA and promotes its mission of raising awareness of ovarian cancer. It was the inspiration of Jodi Brammeier, a Colorado native, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008. She believed she would have caught her cancer earlier had she only been more aware of the signs and symptoms. It became her goal to raise awareness about ovarian cancer through this race so that other women might find their cancer earlier, and stand a chance to win against this deadly disease. The first race was held in June 2010 with a record number of participants for a first-time race. Unfortunately, Jodi lost her battle August, 3, 2010, less than two months after the inaugural race but her memory will live on in Jodi’s Race for Awareness!

About

We are seeking volunteer photographers for an upcoming event.

Our annual event, Jodi's Race for Awareness, is taking place on Saturday, June 10th in Denver's City Park.

This great race attracted 3,200 people (and quite a few dogs!) last year and is our #1 fundraiser for COCA's programs such a support groups, COCA Cares Financial Assistance program, Comfort Kits and Resource Guides for newly diagnosed women, and much more.

We need to expand our force of volunteer photographers since our race and all its activities continue to expand each year! Would you be willing to give your time and talents to our cause? We do ask our photographers to give us electronic access to any photos they take. "Branding" of each photo with your name and business is totally encouraged.
