September Awareness Campaign


During September, which is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, T.E.A.L.® partners with local businesses and organizations to turn New York City and beyond teal to spread awareness about Ovarian Cancer. The goals of this campaign are to spread awareness of the signs, symptoms, and risk factors of Ovarian Cancer, to educate communities about the importance of early detection, to provide support to Ovarian Cancer survivors, and to generate funds for further research to find a cure and a screening test for this disease.

In additional to locally based awareness endeavors, T.E.A.L.®'s September Awareness Campaign continues to grow each year.  Nationally, T.E.A.L.® turns cities across the USA teal through our satellite T.E.A.L.® walks and runs and other awareness events. Globally, T.E.A.L.® spreads awareness by participating in opening bell ceremonies with global reach including the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) (2016) and NASDAQ (2015) in addition to other digital awareness activities. Historic sites such as Brooklyn ​Borough Hall, NYC City Hall​ and Coney Island’s Luna Park Parachute Jump have been lit teal to promote public awareness plus press conferences were held to educate the public of the signs, symptoms and risk factors of Ovarian Cancer.


 

2016

September Awareness Campaign

T.E.A.L.® made great strides in drawing public attention to National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month thanks to its 2016 T.E.A.L.® September Awareness Campaign. T.E.A.L.® partnered with ®Turn The Towns Teal which provided ribbons to decorate trees in cities and towns across the United States. T.E.A.L.® joined forces with local businesses, schools and organizations in NYC and beyond to spread awareness about this disease by posting information in their storefronts and placing T.E.A.L.® Bows on the doors and trees in front of their establishments.

Throughout the month of September, some businesses also supported our efforts by running specials or other promotions to help us draw attention to this disease. We also continued our annual tradition of lighting buildings and monuments the color teal with a new addition of NYC’s City Hall!

Plus, T.E.A.L.® celebrated the courage of Ovarian Cancer survivors and the strength of the families who’ve been touched by the disease, while spreading awareness to the public during the Annual T.E.A.L.® Walk/ Runs for Ovarian Cancer in many cities across the USA.
