ACTivism: Avon Breast Cancer Walks

It is an unfortunate truth that breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. October might be breast cancer awareness month, but the disease still strikes 365 days a year. That is why Reese Witherspoon is working with the Avon Foundation For Women to fight breast cancer.

Fighting this disease is not just for the Hollywood elite. You can make a difference by participating in one of the Avon Breast Cancer Walks. Even their simple slogan — "For two days, we walk as one" — is pretty inspirational. The funds raised by walk participants help medically underinsured women and men receive the screening, support, and treatment they need. Proceeds from the walk also fund research for a cure for breast cancer.

I have a problem with their "if you don't raise x amount of money you can't walk" philosophy. I know that the point is to raise money and awareness, but I would think that even a few hundred bucks donation and walking for the cause would be enough. I was really looking forward to participating but I have a different view after being told I couldn't walk if I didn't raise a minimum amount.
