  • About the event

    The Stef Ripple Story

    Stef Ripple was formed in memory of Stefanie Ashdown, a Severna Park, Maryland native, wife, mother of three, daughter, sister, friend and a two and a half year ovarian cancer warrior. Stef lit up the room with her smile and energy. Others could feel this as well - we call it the Stef Ripple. Stef touched the lives of many through her smile, grace, kindness, motivation and faith. She was soothing and caring – putting her children first, always, but yet always seeming to have time for others. Her three children have learned from her patience, kindness, selflessness and humbleness. A phrase that echoes through her home is “Do your best,” as she would encourage each one of her kids with this phrase, no matter the activity. In memory of Stef, we have formed Stef Ripple to "do our best' in keeping her ripple going by sharing the principles of Stef's life; Be Thankful. Be Helpful. Be Kind.

    This is our second annaul race and funds from our races are used to provide awareness, support, hope and enouragment to ovarian cancer patients and their families. We have partnered up with local hospitals and wellness centers to be able to fullfill our missions and we are so appreciative of all the help and support from the community. 

    Why should you sponsor?

    By sponsoring our event you are helping us to provide support to ovarian cancer patients and their families. We provide Stef Ripple Kindness Boxes to newly diagnosed ovarian cancer patients. We provide support to Johns Hopkins Hospital sponsoring several couples on a summer couples retreat, and we attend wellness events to spread the signs and symptoms or ovarian cancer.
