Every three minutes another American is diagnosed with breast cancer. This statistic has inspired millions to participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Perhaps it will inspire you too.
The 2 day, 39 mile walk raises money to allow
"medically under served women and men to be treated giving them access to the care they require. And hard-working research teams will be powered by the funds they need to fuel their quest for the cure."
Participants, walkers and crew members, must each raise $1800, and there is a comprehensive support system to help them reach their fund raising goals. If you are interesting in participating you will want to know that 76.8%, of all funds raised, is directed to mission programs and services, including grants, gifts and awards to beneficiary organizations
If you need motivation to exercise, signing up could be the answer since there are volunteer-led Training Walks in the areas surrounding Avon Walk event cities. I have heard it is a life transforming experience.
