Welcome to the AVON 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer Chicago Youth Crew Team Page!
The Chicago Youth Crew is an amazing team of 16 energetic kids dedicated to helping find an end to breast cancer. While the walkers are conquering 39.3 miles through Chicago, the Youth Crew are their #1 support team. They help set up the event, wake up at 4am each day to cheer until their voices are hoarse, refill water bottles, hand out snacks, and are a constant source of energy and smiles.
Even though the walk is still a while away, this team is already starting to make an impact by each raising at least $500 in donations. They are committed to the cause because even though you have to be 18 years old to walk the event, you do not have to be 18 to have been affected by breast cancer. Each member of the Youth Crew has a story. Whether it be their mom, grandmother, aunt, teacher, or friend, they all have a loved one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
If you want to read each of their stories, click on their names to visit their personal page, and please consider making a donation on their behalf. One person cannot help everyone, but everyone can help someone.
