The Teal Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization started by Laurie DeSimone and her family. The sole fundraising event for our organization is The Teal Run, which is held in September of each year. Net proceeds from the event go towards funding local support services, such as Cancer CarePoint and Bay Area Cancer Connections, and ovarian cancer research. Research donations have been made in the past to the Canary Center at Stanford and research projects sponsored by Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.

We are an all-volunteer non-profit with no paid employees. Other than expenses related to required filings of our non-profit and expenses associated with The Teal Run, funds received will go directly towards support services and ovarian cancer research.
