5th Annual Heels for Hope race will be Oct. 6

HEELS FOR HOPE FOUNDATION Modified: September 26, 2012 at 9:46 am •  Published: September 26, 2012

Heels for Hope originated after Rosemary Persa, director of Oklahoma Blood Institute’s reference lab and dear friend was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008. In support of her continued battle as well as other women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Heels for Hope Foundation was founded and this event was created to represent Rosemary’s love for high-heeled shoes.

Everyone is invited to participate. Pre-registration fee is $25, includes a race t-shirt and post-race drinks and snacks (while supplies last). All race proceeds will benefit the Heels for Hope Foundation and support local ovarian cancer treatment, awareness and education efforts. For more information, visit
