Where Funds Go
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, which can lead 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 with PCOS.
