Advanced Fertility Center of Texas, a group of fertility treatment centers in the Houston, Texas area, is pleased to announce that it is one of the sponsors for the Amerejuve 2012 PCOS 5K Fun Run/Walk, an annual event that benefits Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). The fun run/walk will be held on Sunday, September 24th, 2012 at the downtown aquarium at 410 Bagby Street in Houston.

An estimated 7 million women and adolescent girls are affected by PCOS, with less than 50% diagnosed. PCOS is responsible for 70% of infertility issues in women who have difficulty ovulating. Teens and post-menopausal women can also suffer from PCOS. Women who suffer from PCOS have cysts on their ovaries that prevent the ovaries from performing normally, affecting regular reproductive functions, like fertility.

The cost to participate is $20.00 to walk and $35.00 to run. The event’s opening ceremony will begin at 7:20 a.m., with runners starting at 8:00 a.m. and walkers starting at 8:15 a.m. The event will conclude with an after party at The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation.
