Donate to Team OCSA Birkie® skiers and help us save lives by making a difference in the early detection of ovarian cancer!
Team OCSA: Riley Gould, Carolyn Ascher, Cassidy Gould
Carolyn Ascher, OCSA Board President and Champion of the One Health Approach:
I will be racing the Prince Haakon (14K), on 2/21/20. In 2021, the Birkie® race officials will offer a virtual race day option. I will take advantage of this and will submit my 14K time results and will earn competition credit for the Prince Haakon without having to race with the event day racers. There will be an OCSA representative as a witness. I hope to finish the race in less than 3 hours, beating my 2020 time by 18 minutes.
Cassidy Gould, Hayward High School Class of 2021:
I will be racing the Birkie® (43K) on 2/25/21. It will be my 3rd year skiing for Team OCSA. My Aunt Kelly McNamee-Johnson died from ovarian cancer and I am skiing in her memory. She would have championed The Ovarian Cancer Awareness Organization (OCSA) who supports the One Health Approach.
