For over 4 years, I have participated in events hosted by the Kindah Foundation. What I enjoy about working with the organization is the high level of professionalism and execution. Each event is timely, fun, well organized and neat. I look forward to participating again in the future and supporting Kindah in any way possible.

This is an absolutely amazing organization. I love the work that they are doing for women in our community. I participated in the Kindah run this year and it was truly a great event. Due to the pandemic it was not a group event but I definitely felt the spirit and love of the members. I highly recommend this organization. Thank you for all that you do to advance women’s health.

As a medical professional, I have had to deal with women suffering from Ovarian cancer. I have seen the toll it takes on them and their families. Having an Organization like KINDAH foundation makes the world of difference by providing access to information and support. Please participate in their charity runs and walks. Donate and volunteer if you can as we strive to eradicate this often preventable disease.

The Florida GYN Cancer Teal 5K Run/Fun Walk celebrated its 5th year this year, with a Virtual Run/Walk, due to COVID-19. I have had the privilege of being there from the very beginning. The Kindah Foundation, with excellent organizers such as Bridgett Parris, have done an excellent job each year, in making this not only a family fun event but bringing awareness and education to all, concerning the GYN Cancers. Gynecologic Cancers have affected women from all walks of life, yet, there is still not enough awareness especially about Ovarian Cancer (“The Silent Killer”), so named because of its vague symptoms, and by the time of diagnosis, in some cases, would have metastasized.

According to The New England Journal of medicine, “Ovarian Cancer is a leading
cause of death from gynecologic cancers in women worldwide.”

This yearly event not only provides the fun, but provides information, resources, counseling, and excellent medical personnel to assist anyone experiencing these conditions.

Come on out and join this community each year (hopefully the coronavirus will be gone), so that we can actually meet again to enjoy this very important and informative event!

Thank you Bridgett Parris and the Kindah Foundation for bringing awareness on these subjects.

I am a 2 time ovarian cancer survivor. After 10 years, the miscarriage of my only baby, and a husband that left me, the cancer came back. I had another surgery, fought on my own with no one on my side this time. It was hard but I fought to stand strong. I could not run, due to my recent surgery, but I walked the whole way on my own. I walked for others fighting like myself, and for those still fighting and for those that have lost the battle. I hope for a stronger awareness about ovarian cancer, for a better way to detect it and most of all, for a cure. A cure for ovarian cancer and all cancer.

Bridgette is beautiful soul who inspires people to be well and stay well, by advocating for women to get tested for all cancers that affect us. Her foundation does annual awareness events for cervical and breast cancer and she get involved in other events year round that provide help where it is needed the most.

This organization should have a 10 star for the work they do in the community to raise awareness for Gynecologic Cancer. I did not know much about HPV until I attend one of their events. The Founder is so professional when I had an issue with the registration I was given her personal cell and she literally works me through the process because the office was close and left the message on their Facebook page. I am looking forward to the organization's 2021 events.

My experience volunteering with Kindah Foundation was inspiring and fun! I am thrilled i was able to assist in setting up for the 5K Event they have every year. The volunteers was professional, and the event director was professional, and you can see they care about the cancer survivors, and the mission of the organization, and everyone worked together to make sure the event was successful, that was a beautiful thing to see I was treated like family, and i can't wait to do it all again next year!

I really wanted to donate to the cause by running the Florida Teal 5k on Sept. 29th in Davie, FL but I was really disappointed on how this run was organized. It started the day of packet pickup. I got there early about 15mins ealry so I can be one of the firsts in line to pick up. What shouldve been a quick thing turned out to be almost an hour when the person who was handing out the packet forgot half of the tshirts. So alot of people had to wait in this tiny shoe store while someone brought the rest of the shirts in. By the way there was only 1 lady working the pickup packets. The morning of the race seemed to be going fine until we arrived at the first water station and all there was, was a couple of 24packs of water laying on the ground. So people had to stop and pull out a water bottle out of the package for themselves. At the end of most races there's volunteers waiting to hand out medals to those who just finish race. At this race there was no one. One of the volunteers had to go pull them out of a box once people started to ask for them. It just seems to me the organizers of this 5k arent dedicated enough to have a successful, enjoyable 5k.

Went for the 5k they were very organized and by the end of the race all the stands were up. Refreshments options and foods were success for me and my team. Definitely doing it next year and bringing more people.

I have been involved with the Teal Walk since it’s inception in 2016. Bridgett has been an inspiration and puts her whole heart and soul into this organization. It is the only walk for ovarian cancer in South Florida and it helps to raise awareness, which is important since ovarian cancer is a silent killer.
The Kindah Foundation is a much needed organization in South Florida as there are no other groups like it here.

Amazing and much needed organization. Other cancers get all the awareness advertising and funding while ovarian cancer has a much higher mortality rate. God bless Bridgett and the work she’s doing.

I’ve dealt with the Kindah Foundation as a vendor and as a family member of a woman who unfortunately got her wings on 4/4/18. My mother didn’t win her battle with Stage 4 Endometrial Cancer. Bridgette, however, was a great resource and inspiration during my mom’s battle. We will continue to raise awareness and participate with this organization.

Great organization to volunteer for. I wanted to be apart of a local organization that truly makes a difference in the lives of women with GYN cancer.
