 Ashton Thompson becomes the first National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) Athletic Ambassador, committed to spreading awareness on and off the track

From the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, story copied from EINPresswire:

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, March 8, 2022 / -- 1 in 78 - no, that’s not the ratio of female to male drivers in the racing world, that is a woman’s risk of getting ovarian cancer in her lifetime. Kenyon Midget race fans will spend the 2022 season learning about the risks, signs, and symptoms of ovarian cancer thanks to the NOCC’s first Athletic Ambassador, Ashton Thompson. “After looking into the NOCC, I quickly realized that this partnership would be a huge success. I want to do everything I can to spread awareness for ovarian cancer and be here to support anyone who has to endure this horrible disease.”

As an Athletic Ambassador for the organization, Thompson will support early awareness and education initiatives in a sport with plenty of female fans, but few female drivers to look up to. As the only female driver in the field this race season, Thompson’s unique perspective and passion for racing will inspire women across the country to take action and advocate for their health. "We are proud to have Ashton join us in bringing much-needed awareness to ovarian cancer,” shared NOCC CEO Melissa Aucoin, “ a disease that impacts over 21,000 women in the U.S each year, and so grateful to have her heroic commitment in reaching and empowering new audiences of women everywhere with lifesaving health messages."

NOCC and Ashton Thompson Racing are excited to partner during the 2022 race season to break barriers on the track and break the silence on ovarian cancer. To learn more about the 2022 Kenyon Midget Race Season and where you can catch Ashton, visit
