October 29, 2009

avonwalkNY20091866This year, I participated in 3 of the 9 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer events:   Boston, New York, and Charlotte.  Your generous contributions totaled $5,041.  Thank you !  I really appreciate all your support, especially in light of the difficult economic times.

Some stats from the 3 walks:

Boston:

  • The Avon Walk Boston raised more than $5.6 million to advance access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer.
  • The Avon Walk Boston was a huge success, with over 2500 participants drawn from 37 states, including 214 breast cancer survivors, who joined together to raise lifesaving funds and awareness for breast cancer.
