ST. CHARLES – The Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness organization had its third “Walk for the Goose” 5K on Sept. 14 in St. Charles and raised more than $2,000.

Proceeds from the walk support the group’s Veterinary Outreach Program. The program is in collaboration with the Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association and engages veterinarians, whose medical discipline involves promoting and protecting public health and  ensuring an environment free of animal-borne diseases, in addition to caring for animals, according to a news release.

The former Miss USA ambassador 2012, Alyssa Paulsen, served as emcee for the event.

More than 120 OCSA supporters attended the event, half of which brought their canine companions to enjoy the day, according to the release.

The nonprofit organization, founded by the late Susan “The Goose” Roman, her husband, Rick, and friend Vallie Szymanski, is dedicated to educating women and their families about the symptoms of ovarian cancer, so early detection and treatment can save lives, states the release.
