Thank you for your participation in the 3rd Annual Stefanie Ashdown Memorial “Do Your Best” 5k and 1 Mile Walk. The event was a huge success! Over 410 participants came out on race day to run, walk, volunteer, celebrate, and honor Stefanie. Together we were able to raise over $15,000 which will help us continue our mission to:

  • Provide hope, encouragement, and support for ovarian cancer patients and their families

  • Spread ovarian cancer awareness

  • Share the principles of Stef’s life; be thankful, be helpful, be kind

One new way we are fulfilling our mission is by the establishment of the Stefanie Ashdown Ovarian Cancer Family Support Fund. As announced on race day, this fund will provide financial assistance with non-hospital related expenses typically incurred by patients and their families while the patient is in the hospital. Examples of these types of expenses include parking fees, hotel rooms for extended stays, local transportation, and meals. This support will be available to ovarian cancer patients at John Hopkins. Stef Ripple is excited and proud to offer this assistance to ovarian cancer patients and their families and could not do so without your generous support.

We invite you to stay current with our efforts and progress by visiting and following us on Facebook and Instagram at StefRipple. When browsing our website be sure to check out our race day photos at (Password: Do Your Best). The memories captured on race day are a glimpse into the love and energy of the Stef Ripple family, which you are such a big part of. Thanks again for your participation in the 3rd Annual Stefanie Ashdown “Do Your Best” 5K and 1 Mile Walk.


With Thanks,

Stef Ripple
