Flash mob aims to raise awareness for ovarian cancer

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A flash mob took over the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday in hopes of raising awareness for ovarian cancer.

Women participating in the flash mob were wearing teal in honor of ovarian cancer survivors. Security guards also took part by learning the dance out of support for the cause.

Sue Schneider was the master mind behind the flash mob. She wanted more women to know the early signs of ovarian cancer. Schneider lost her battle during the planning phase of the dance.

Michele Teague hopes women know the signs and symptoms “we’re really hoping if you can know the signs and the symptoms that you will detect it early and become a survivor and be able to dance with us at something like this.”

Survivors danced to Pharrel William’s song “Happy!”
