This fall, for the 4th time, I will participate in the 39-mile Avon Walk, in memory of my little sister Elise (1967-2012). Everyone on our team has participated in at least one NYC Avon39 Walk -- and loved every minute of the training and the event. Fighting -- and sometimes losing -- the battle with cancer, is debilitating for both the victim and her loved ones. The feeling of taking charge, taking positive action, empowers us individually and has created a unique team bond as well.
We each have our reasons for participating. We commit to training -- you can solve all the world's problems during a 10-mile training walk :) -- and we each pledge to raise $1,800. With your amazing generosity, SONC has been one of the Top 10 fundraising teams in NYC for each of the past two years, raising over $55,000 in 2016 alone. We are similarly ambitiious for 2017, as we take our team on the road to the event in Santa Barbara, CA!
I hope I can count on your support again this year! If you prefer to write a check, please contact me for paperwork.
Thank you so much for your donation! And if you see me on the road in New Canaan (or a neighboring town!), please give me a little beep of encouragement!
XOXO -- Jennifer
