Stefanie Ashdown Memorial

"Do Your Best" 5k and 1 Mile Walk

On September 9, 2017 Stef Ripple hosted it's inaugural Stefanie Ashdown Memorial "Do Your Best" 5k and 1 mile walk. The race was held in Arnold, Maryland, beginning at the Belvedere Elementary school. Proceeds raised will be used to provide support to ovarian cancer patients and their families by funding camps and activities for their children.

This event was special in so many ways. From the kindness of the volunteers and sponsors to the 400+ who registered to Stef's son, Owen Ashdown, finishing first overall. It was truly amazing!Together we came together as a community, a family to spread ovarian cancer awareness and to honor Stef. Thank you all!
