Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation


Supporting Ovarian Cancer

The female athlete was a key area of focus of SDA’s founding President Helen O’Connor. Sadly, we lost Helen earlier this year to ovarian cancer. If you would like to support research into ovarian cancer, an option will appear on the registration page to make a $5 donation, which will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation. No obligation, just if you would like to.

Leading the push for better

Established in 2000, the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) has grown to become Australia’s leading independent body dedicated to funding national ovarian cancer research.

They demonstrate leadership in the ovarian cancer space through:

  • prioritising research that will have the biggest impact for the most women
  • collaborating with ovarian cancer experts to identify and pursue the most promising projects
  • embracing a dual focus on both the present (reducing the lethal threat for women today) and the future (striving for complete eradication of ovarian cancer).
