In September, the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership is partnering with Brooklyn-based women’s health group Tell Every Amazing Lady (T.E.A.L.) for national ovarian cancer awareness month. For the third year in a row, we will be teaming up with T.E.A.L. to participate to help raise awareness by adorning Myrtle Avenue storefronts and street trees with teal ribbon. The purpose of the ribbons is to bring awareness to women about the disease that over 22,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with this year.
T.E.A.L’s primary mission is to educate women about ovarian cancer and to raise funding for research. Several businesses are providing opportunities this month for their customers to easily donate while they shop. Stay tuned for upcoming teal-colored promotions!
