RALEIGH (WTVD) -- ABC11 Together Perspectives for August 22, 2021 featured segments on the Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer Walk and 5K, Lazy Daze and Durham's Third Friday Art Walk and Concert at Golden Belt.
Gail Parkins Memorial Ovarian Cancer Walk and 5K
In 2003 Gail Parkin's family held their first memorial walk. Five years later they expanded the event to include a 5K race as they worked to raise money for research and awareness of a disease that kills more than 10,000 American women every year. Ovarian Cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women.
This year the Gail Parkins Memorial Cancer Walk and 5K is back with both in-person and virtual events. The virtual 5K can take place between September 4 and 18. The in-person walk and 5K takes place on Saturday, September 18 at Sanderson High School in Raleigh.
