Soap star Tamara Braun has used her celebrity to help raise money and awareness for plenty of good causes over the years and is planning to participate in the Sandy Sprint California on Sunday, Nov. 14 to raise money for the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation to spread the word and raise funds to advance research for ovarian cancer. And she would love your support!
Braun is currently starring as Ava on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, but it was while she was playing Kim on GENERAL HOSPITAL that she first participated in an event for the organization with some of her castmates. “Two years ago in September, I did a personal appearance to benefit the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation,” she recalled on Instagram. “William deVry (ex-Julian) was one of the spokespeople for the organization and I was being skeptical and asked if the organization was legit and were the funds really going to help women in need? He promised me they were and sent me a link to learn about the organization and told me about the woman, Robin, who runs it.”
Braun agreed to join her GH co-stars at the event and was very happy that she did. “Not only did I have a wonderful time with that group of ding dongs I used to work with in the photo and seeing the fans,” the actress declared, “but I fell in love with Robin, her pure heart, and all she has done to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer research in Sandy’s name. Robin is good people. Really good.
“So I am asking for your help to support me do the Sandy Sprint on Nov. 14 in Los Angeles,” Braun continued. “I’ll be walking and would love to have you join my team or if you can’t join in person, you can still help out by making a donation to support the cause. Can you share a little Ovary Love? Thank you, beautiful ones.”
The Sandy Sprint California is a 5K run and walk that is being held on the Main Trail at Griffith Park.
