This year, I have committed to participating in my very first Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I am very excited to walk with my cousin and friends from long ago – we are wives, mothers and daughters on a mission to end breast cancer.
It is a big commitment, one that will require me to spend the next several months training and fundraising, as if training for my upcoming marathons isn’t enough. Breast cancer is a big disease, one that affects far too many women and men, and I am determined to do everything I can to help put an end to it.
The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, a 501(c)(3) public charity, to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. I will be just one of thousands of people that will walk up to a marathon and a half over a weekend, raising awareness of the cause and educating even more people.
I cannot do it without your help. Though I am required to raise at least $1,800 in donations, I plan to raise at least $2,500! I hope that I can count on your support.
You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign right here on the website by clicking “Donate Now“. If you prefer to write a check, simply contact me and I will send you the information and form. All of our sponsors will be mentioned on our Facebook page as well as their Logos on our Sponsor signs we bring to all out events. Any company whose donation exceeds $250 value will also be listed on our team t-shirts that we wear and sell.
As I prepare for this exciting event, I plan to update my Avon Walk page frequently so that all my supporters can follow my progress, so please visit often. While you are there, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise.
Thank you in advance.
