Run for Her hosts its tenth annual 5K in Los Angeles


While running season always signals a stampede of 5Ks, 10Ks, and marathons—a few usually stand out more than others. Run for Her is one of those.

For Kelli Sargent, Run for Her, an annual 5K race in Los Angeles, benefiting ovarian cancer research and awareness, will always be about her mother.

The race was started by Sargent after her mother passed away from ovarian cancer. And while running season always signals a stampede of 5Ks to marathons—a few usually stand out more than others. On Sunday, November 9, thousands of supporters dressed in turquoise tees will hit the streets of Los Angeles for the tenth annual Run for Her race.

“When my mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I also learned that there is no reliable detection test for ovarian cancer. You can’t go to your doctor and say ‘test me for ovarian cancer,’” Sargent says. “We want to not only generate awareness…but also empower women.”

To date, the cause has raised more than $6 million for the Cedars-Sinai women’s cancer program and has tallied up almost $200,000 this year. (Run for Her also had races in the Bay Area and New York City this year.) Now that’s a really good way to get your miles in. —Molly Gallagher
