Lena's Run for Life 2023: pencil in August 28th - September 3rd!

Lena Wäppling's Foundation is the only charity in Europe run by an ovarian cancer survivor raising funds and granting them directly to peer-reviewed ovarian cancer research projects globally.

Advancing Research in Ovarian Cancer

A Unique Foundation

We were founded in 2019, and so far we have granted EUR 250.000 to research.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecological cancer. More research is needed to increase the survival rate and save lives.

We fundraise through:

  • Our annual event Lena's Run For Life. Corporate sponsorships and individual participation virtually or at local events hosted by volunteers in various cities.

  • Direct donations

  • Branded merchandise sold online

We are 100% volunteer-led and every donated cent goes towards research
