Bolt for PCOS is the country's largest event dedicated to raising awareness and funds to help fight polycystic ovary syndrome. PCOS affects up to 14 million women in the U.S. and hundreds of millions globally. It is one of the most critical, under-diagnosed, underfunded and neglected areas of health and can lead to infertility, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, liver disease and life long complications. Bolt for PCOS is hosted by Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority with proceeds going to benefit PCOS Challenge, Inc., the country's leading 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization advancing the cause for women and girls with PCOS. Funds raised from the event will go toward PCOS research, health screenings, grants, education and support programs, as well as increasing awareness and public support for those with polycystic ovary syndrome. The event includes a 5K Run/Walk and 0.54 Fun Run.
