The event will take place over the course of a few hours with music, empowerment, and of course the 5k.
Cervivor has been such an amazing organization for me. I first experience with Cervivor was in September 2015 when I was able to attend a Cervivor School in San Diego. I have been super vested ever since. Cervivor helped me to organize myself and continues to give me the support to be an impactful active advocate.
I am so thrilled to be able to share this amazing organization and event with my family, friends, and hometown.

There is also a Cervivor School which will be held in Louisville August 19-21. This event is open to cervical cancer survivors or patients as well as women living with HPV. It is free for women in the Kentucky area and it will be an amazing, empowering, experience. Here is more information about Cervivor School. You can find the link to sign up here for Cervivor School Louisville.
I'm available to answer any questions you might have about either of these amazing opportunities!
Here is the information about the event, straight from the Cervivor website:
Cervivor School is for cervical cancer patients and survivors 25 years or older who are motivated to advocate for HPV and cervical cancer awareness as well as create meaningful relationships with other survivors and experts in the field; all to ultimately change the future of women’s health.
The event will be led by global cervical cancer advocate Tamika Felder, founder of Cervivor. As a 15-year Cervivor (cervical cancer survivor + passionate advocate) she is dedicated to empowering women around the world, giving them the tools needed to share the authenticity of their cervical cancer stories.
At Cervivor School you’ll get:
– essential knowledge about HPV, cervical cancer, and cancer prevention;
– training in impactful storytelling so you can share your experiences with confidence and authenticity;
– support from and bonding with other women who have been right where you are; and
– access to experts in areas such as media, advocacy, scientific research, healthcare, communications, psychology, and therapy.
As a graduate of Cervivor School, you’ll be on your way to becoming a Cervivor Ambassador; committed to using your voice to advocate for the cervical cancer movement and fostering positive relationships with other Cervivor Sisters.
