"We were running the Outrun Ovarian Cancer (OROC) 5K in Cleveland, Ohio in memory of my mom, Rose, who lost her battle with stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2009. This race is a great race which starts outside the Rock and Roll Museum. My mom participated with me in 2008. This year, I decided to gather friends and family to participate and had shirts made for our team. CustomInk was so helpful during the order process from the online help, phone help and emails, and then the further surprise of the donation to my cause - thanks CustomInk."
Custom T-Shirts for ovarian cancer
Katelyn's warriors by Danielle - almost 2 years ago
"This photo was taken at a charity yard sale in Homer Glen IL on August 2, 3 and 4th, 2012. The event was organized in order to raise money for a local family in need. One of the young ladies in this family (Katelyn) was diagnosed with small cell ovarian cancer. Teal is the cancer ribbon color for ovarian cancer, hence the color of our shirts. Our shirts displayed "Katelyn's warriors." A Tshirt was given to everyone that took part in organizing the sale. During the course of the yard sale, we were a united team of Katelynâ€™s warriors (recognized by the team t-shirts), and everyone that came to buy or donate knew who to interact with in terms of paying for items/donating... plus we just looked cool. Thanks Customink! "
Kickbutt Cancer Crew by Team Kickbutt - about 2 years ago
"These t-shirts don't represent an event, but rather a journey ... one that I am making with the help of my amazing friends. These women are scattered across North America, and have come together to support me as I wage war against Stage IV ovarian cancer. I was diagnosed in 2010 and then had a recurrence in March of this year. The first time around I was upset; the second time I was MAD! Hence, the slogan on the shirts (the back reads CHEMO SUCKS!). I think they accurately reflect the fighter in me - and also some truths about dealing with this disease. I have a lot of living left to do, and am determined to get through this round of treatment and get on with my plans! I sent my girlfriends these shirts and asked them to pose with their city name. I have them surrounding me in the photo because that's exactly how I feel - surrounded by their support, their friendship, and their love. They wear their shirts on the days I have chemo and knowing that makes me feel less alone as I take my place in my 'chemo chair'. It's no surprise to me that when all the other patients in the clinic see my shirt, they first have a good laugh and then soon admit to feeling the same way. It's amazing how a t-shirt can inspire conversation and bring people together. It's the same with my friends. Although they're not physically present with me, my 'team' is with me in thought and in spirit and as always, in my heart. I could not do this without them. The Customink experience was pleasantly easy - and the emails from Laney (including a charitable donation on my behalf) demonstrated the spirit of this company. I have so many requests for more shirts from friends, family, and complete strangers, I have no doubt that my 'Kickbutt" design isn't finished just yet!"
Shelley's Seashells- 5K Team by National Ovarian Cancer Coalition 5K Run (Northern VA) - about 2 years ago
"Here's a team photo from the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition 5K Run in the Northern Virginia area, which took place on Saturday, May 12, 2012. We have since raised over $5,000 for this great cause. There were 30 people on our team running in support of a great friend and family member who passed away after her battle with Ovarian Cancer. The tie-dye shirts were such a hit at the race and made us stand out in a sea of teal. Everyone at CustomInk was so great to work with--we can't wait to design our shirts with them for next year's race too!"
Project Hercules says, F**K Cancer! by F-Cancer - over 2 years ago
"We had a fantastic time working with Customink. They made our design come to life and were a huge hit in the 5k we ran together. They have also helped us raise money for ovarian cancer research. $5 from each shirt goes directly to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund."
Team Teal Toes Runs Like A Girl by TealToes - over 2 years ago
"A group of us ran/walked the Run Like a Girl 5/10K in Virginia Beach on 10/23/11. RLAG supports the HERA Foundation for Ovarian Cancer. Teal Toes seeks to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer by encouraging folks to paint their toenails teal-- the color of ovarian cancer awareness. Some of us had shirts already and the others decided they had to have them to. We made a rush order through Custom Ink and got them in plenty of time!!"
Gumbo Gopher 5K by Gumbo Gopher 5K - almost 3 years ago
"This was our second annual Gumbo Gopher 5K. Our small town of Lowry, SD turned from population 9 to 175 people for a few hours on the morning of September 24, 2011. Last year we started the race to raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research as my beautiful mother-in-law was battling ovarian cancer at the time. We had a huge success and an absolute LOVE for the t-shirts from the first year. My mother-in-law passed away two days before Christmas but we know how proud she would be of us continuing the cause so we have made it an annual event. I can't tell you how many times I have seen our shirts around the surrounding communities both from this year and last year. I find that extremely inspiring! Just the other day I had someone ask me if I could design more shirts from CustomInk so they could have one for every day of the week. I laughed and told them to wait until next year but this just goes to show how much people have absolutely LOVED the shirts from CustomInk. It's so nice to know that our shirts are being worn and loved and not just brought to a thrift store and stuffed in the back of a drawer. Great job CustomInk, can't wait to do business again with you next year!"
Remembering Linda by DD - about 3 years ago
Team Tater Tot by Team Tater Tot - about 3 years ago
"Team Tater Tot loves to participate in local walks to support important causes. Memorial Day Weekend we participated in the 5K Teal Ribbon Ovarian Cancer Walk in Philly. We walked in memory of our Mama Tate. This is the 2nd time we have ordered team shirts through CustomInk and both experiences were great. People commented on how much they loved our shirts at both events!"
Gumbo Gopher 5K - Raising support for Ovarian Cancer by Gumbo Gopher 5K - almost 4 years ago
"Held in a town with the population of 9. That's right I said, 9 people. We held the first ever 5K to raise support for my husbands mother who is currently fighting ovarian cancer. In the small town of 9 people, 150 people joined in the 5K run/walk event! The picture is of a small group of us that put on the race."
