About Bolt for PCOS
Bolt for PCOS is the country's largest event dedicated to raising awareness and funds to help fight polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
The Bolt for PCOS 5K Run/Walk at Georgia Tech is the second major event during PCOS Awareness Weekend 2017 - Atlanta. It follows the 5th Annual Atlanta PCOS Awareness Symposium the previous day which will also be held at Georgia Tech.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects over seven million women in the U.S. and hundreds of millions globally. It is one of the most critical, under-diagnosed, underfunded and neglected areas of health, leading to infertility, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer. By supporting the Bolt for PCOS 5K Run Walk, you will become a champion for one of the most important issues affecting women’s health. Your support will make a huge difference in the lives of tens-of-thousands of women as proceeds from the Bolt for PCOS race will go toward PCOS research, health screenings, grants, education and support programs, as well as increasing awareness and public support for those with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Your support will help improve health outcomes, health management and quality of care for women and girls with PCOS.
