Aug. 8, 2014



AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn head women's golf coach Kim Evans will be making several stops around the state to promote ovarian cancer awareness over the coming weeks.

"I am really excited about participating in all the functions around the state for cancer awareness and research," Evans said. "I am so fortunate to feel good and have the support of so many wonderful people. It is my hope to bring awareness to people to help support those who are fighting this disease and to continue to fight for good health and a cure."

Coming up next Saturday, Aug. 16, Evans will participate in the "Save the O's 5K" at Greystone Golf & Country Club in Hoover. The race is set for an 8 a.m. start and will include a 5K run and a 1-mile fun run. For more information or to register, visit SaveTheOs5k.com.

She will make another Birmingham TV appearance on Monday, Aug. 11, as she will sit down for an interview with "Talk of Alabama," which airs at 9 a.m. on ABC 33/40.

On Sept. 2, Evans will be the featured speaker at "A State of Teal" Lighting and GYN Cancer Awareness Ceremony, which will take place at Regions Field in Birmingham. The event is open to the public. After the ceremony, the "BIRMINGHAM" sign down the first-base side will be lit in teal for the month of September. For more information, visit aSTATEofTEAL.org.
