Well, we have another NYC Pap Rally & Run in the books. We are beyond grateful to those who came out to support our cause, and those who supported from afar.
Extra special thank yous to Yes! Organic Market in D.C. for providing refreshments; Lane Moore, our event MC who kept us laughing and entertained; Dr. Rachel Masch for discussing the importance of HPV and cervical cancer awareness; Vanessa and Edna for donating water; Music From Thin Places for providing music after the run; and DJs Mike and Damien for waking up the Upper East Side with their bass so early on a Saturday morning.
While words can only go so far, here are some images and video that captured the day.
Dr. Rachel Masch, executive director of Basic Health International Inc., spoke about the importance of HPV education and detection.
We were also honored to have survivors and ambassadors share their stories.
And last, but not least, we ran into Ms. Katie Couric as she was out walking with a friend. She was so gracious and it felt like she talked with us forever as she sincerely wanted to know about our cause.
This 5k walk is the perfect opportunity to get involved and raise awareness for cervical cancer and its connection to HPV. We can’t wait to do it again next year!

And now we march forward to Cervivor School West, Sept. 24-27, in San Diego!
