We are proud to have Ashton join us in bringing much-needed awareness to ovarian cancer, a disease that impacts over 21,000 women in the U.S each year.”
— Melissa Aucoin, CEO, National Ovarian Cancer Coalition
DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, March 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- 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 ashtonthompsonracing.org.

About Ashton Thompson Racing: Ashton Thompson Racing was created in 2006 when Ashton began her motorsports career. Instead of playing YMCA soccer, Ashton wanted to follow in her family’s footsteps. Ashton is on the fast track to a career in motorsports. Her goals for the end of this year are to be racing full-time in the ARCA Menards Series with Kimmel Racing. Ashton’s primary goal is to empower young female drivers and continue to break down barriers. “My goal one day is to have a successful female lead team that is driven towards motivating young female drivers to follow their dreams.” Ashton would also like to thank her sponsors for supporting her and our cause.
