Athletes standing together against ovarian cancer
Teal Attack is a movement centered on high school and collegiate athletic events to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer support.
• During the month of September, National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, an athletic team would host a "Teal Attack" game. If the sport plays in a different time of the year, games can be held in other months.
• Both home and visiting Varsity teams would receive free Teal Attack t-shirts to wear during warm-ups, up to 15 shirts per team.
• Your athletic program or team can take the initiative to buy or sell more t-shirts for $10 each during the game (and/or the week preceding the game) to students, parents, and school staff, or undertake other fundraising ideas approved by the Teal Attack coordinator and each team's coach. Ovarian cancer literature will be made available to distribute at the sporting event.
All proceeds from the event will go toward supporting the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance. Participating schools will be recognized on this webpage. When possible, MIOCA volunteers will attend the Teal Attack sporting event.
Karen O'Brien,Teal Attack Coordinator, is the Head Volleyball Coach for St. Mary's Catholic Central, a franchise owner - Subway in Dundee, and an ovarian cancer survivor.

MIOCA thanks all Teal Attack Teams!
MIOCA is so appreciative of the many teams who have partnered with us to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. Because ovarian cancer affects females of all ages, it is especially critical to reach high school and college aged women. We encourage you to attend a Teal Attack game to show support for these incredible athletes who are showing support of our cause! Stay tuned for the Fall 2017 game schedule!
