Welcome, and thank you for visiting our Lombardi/CBCC AVON 39 team page!
We walk to support the Capital Breast Cancer Center (CBCC) and all those in need in our community. CBCC is a Georgetown-Lombardi initiaitive. CBCC in its 12th year providing prevention, screening, education, and breast cancer care to all. Through these walks, over the years Avon has donated several million dollars to sustain CBCC.
Our team has learned that there is strength in numbers- in sharing, and in support each other. We have shared stories, snacks, socks, and lots of laughter. We train through rain, cold, heat, all around the metro DC area, carrying our team flag. We have walked hundreds of miles so far and will keep walking until there is an end to breast cancer.
So, please join us to walk, donate, cheer us on.
Please support our team. You can make a donation to any team member by clicking on their name, and you’ll be taken to their personal page. If you'd prefer to write a check, just contact one of us and we'll send you the form and information.
Please check back here frequently to see how we're doing, and thanks in advance for your support!
