About the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
Your participation helps support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, which donates funds raised to leading cancer centers and community-based organizations to support breast cancer prevention and treatment research, access to care, and outreach programs across the country, and will allow Estroven to continue its focus on elevating important women’s health issues.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer series, which recognized its 10th birthday in 2012, is a project of the Avon Foundation for Women, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Since its launch in 2003, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer series has raised more than $445 million through the dedication of more than 173,000 participating women and men from across the country, including hundreds of Avon Associates and Representatives. The Avon Foundation awards the funds raised to local, regional and national breast cancer organizations to support breast cancer awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, access to treatment, support services, and scientific research. The Walks take place in nine cities, covering 39 miles in two days, and raise significant awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Series is the largest fund-raising event for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. Since the Crusade launched in 1992, Avon breast cancer programs in more than 50 countries have donated $740 million for research and advancing access to care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay.
