About run for her®

The History

Motivated by her mother's battle with cancer, Kelli Sargent created a marketing and operations plan for an ovarian cancer 5k run/walk for her Master's Degree thesis. She later partnered with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to create run for her®, a 5k Run and Friendship Walk for Ovarian Cancer Research and Awareness. The inaugural event in 2005 took place in a Cedars-Sinai parking lot with 700 people and has now become one of the largest ovarian cancer run/walks in the nation with over 5,000 participants in 2012 and Sleepwalkers in all 50 states and 14 countries.


Nanci Sargent Happy Hatters

Welcome Happy Hatters!

These hats are meant to represent strength, courage, hope, wisdom, and love for all those affected by cancer. With her sparkles and glitter it often gets a lot of attention that opens the door to conversations about ovarian cancer. Other times, the hat just strikes up a friendly chat that results in meeting new people who give you that extra smile. Each and every woman has her own unique style and beauty. Please remember to try to embrace each day, stay brave, stand tall, and remain strong. We thank you for all that you are and all that you do. To all the survivors, caretakers, doctors, friends, and family...our hats are off to you!

Love and hugs,

Our wonderful Nanci Sargent lost her battle with ovarian cancer. We miss Nanci tremendously and continue to celebrate her incredible legacy. Nanci introduced Happy Hatters and the note above explains what it meant to her. We invite you to celebrate with us by visiting Nanci's Awareness Tent on event morning, picking up your Happy Hatters hat, and continuing to spread Nanci's message.

The Founding run for her® Committee

Since 2005, the Founding run for her® Executive Committee and Young Guns Committee has poured their heart and soul into making run for her® what it is today. From stuffing goodie bags, stapling team signs to sponsorship and creating innovative ideas like Sleepwalkers Around the World, these Committees have been a powerful force in making run for her® one of the largest ovarian cancer run/walks in the world.

We thank each one of them for their passion, time, creativity, humor, and heart. And most of all we thank them for keeping the personal touch of run for her® a priority that has made run for her® such a special day for so many.
