Pauline's story

Pauline and her family have taken part in the Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run every year since 2017:

I really enjoyed it. You're made to feel so welcome. So many people, strangers, spoke to us before we started, which was lovely. You're all there for the same reason. You see people with notices on their backs and you get tears reading their messages. It's quite inspiring.


Frequently asked questions

Signing up

Can I sign up offline?

Yes, you can sign up over the phone by calling 020 7923 5474, or you can email us at [email protected] and we'll send you a paper form.

Can I enter on the day?

Yes, but we do recommend you sign up in advance to secure your place. 

Can children take part on their own?

Anyone under the age of 16 needs to be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is responsible for them on the day. 

Can I make changes to my entry?

Yes, please contact us and we’d be happy to make any changes. This includes if you've signed up individually and would now like to become part of a team.

I can’t attend anymore, can I get my money back?

The registration fee is non-refundable but if you’d like someone else to take part in your place, please contact us as soon as possible.


Why is there a minimum sponsorship amount?

We rely on voluntary donations and sponsorship raised from events to continue our work. The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run is our largest fundraising event and as well as raising awareness, it's responsible for raising a substantial amount of the income we invest into beating ovarian cancer. We must do much more than just cover the cost of the event and we rely on all of our participants raising the minimum pledge as well as those exceeding it. 

If you’d like some tips on how to raise £100, our fundraising team would be more than happy to help with this. 

How do I set up my fundraising page?

Your online fundraising page will be automatically created for you when you sign up and you'll be able to view and customise your page using the log-in details you created – your log-in details will be sent to you via email so don't forget to check your junk folder! 

If you sign up offline, a page will be created for you and you'll be emailed a link to create a password. 

Can I use sponsorship forms instead of a donation page?

Yes, you can print our sponsorship form [PDF] or contact us if you’d like us to send you some: [email protected]

I've raised money offline, how do I pay in my sponsorship?

You can pay in your sponsorship online, by phone on 020 7923 5474, or you can send a cheque, made payable to ‘Target Ovarian Cancer’, to Target Ovarian Cancer, 30 Angel Gate, City Road, London EC1V 2PT. Please write your name and ‘Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run’ at the back of each cheque. 

Is there a deadline for sending in sponsorship?

We ask that all sponsorship is paid in by Monday, 23 July 2023.

If you have any more questions please email [email protected] or call us on 020 7923 5474 and we’ll be happy to help.
