Monies raised through AVON 39 go to fund important research and community programs both locally and nationally. The funds are managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it. Services are provided to everyone – no matter their insurance status, demographic background or ability to pay.
Our Team, RACK ATTACK, is participating for our fifth consecutive year. We raised a total of $53,576.70 during the last four. We have a ten member team in 2017 made up of both men and women. We are all working hard together with a solid commitment to ending breast cancer.
We individually walk for different reasons but we are all there for one UNITED CAUSE to help fund research to end breast cancer and provide medical care for those who can’t afford it. We are determined to do everything we can to help raise awareness and money to put an end to this terrible affliction. We appreciate all of the support from our friends and family.
