I am participating in AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It won’t be easy, but that’s why it's worth it. From now until AVON 39 weekend, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer.
This is a personal challenge for me. The ugliness of cancer has touched the lives of too many of my loved ones. From my mother-in-law, to my sister, who is a two-time breast cancer survivor, to many people in my larger church family, I’ve watched as cancer has taken its toll, physically and even worse, emotionally. I too am a survivor and today one of my closest friends on this planet struggles this horrible disease. If I can add a drop in the bucket of relief at least it’s one more drop closer toward a cure.
I need to raise at least $1,800 before the walk. This is my fifth time walking the Avon 39. I had to take a break for a couple of years for health reasons but this year I'm back, just as determined and I need your help and support. I hope I can count on you.
You can make a donation right here on my webpage by clicking the "Donate Now" button to the right. If you prefer to write a check, click the “Donate By Mail” button and follow the instructions on the form.
Your donations will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. The dollars you pledge will put food on the table of a breast cancer patient and her family. They will enable access to mammograms and medicine, fuel research, and save lives. Need any more reason to click that Donate Now button?
I’m walking with thousands of other 39ers. We’re banding together in solidarity and have one goal: to take breast cancer down. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you’re part of it.
