Thanks for visiting my personal page here at AVON 39. I'm so excited to take my fourth AVON 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer on the road and head to Boston for another 39.3 mile, two-day journey!
Why do I keep walking the Walk? For me, it's a very personal journey. While 2017 marks my mom's ninth year as a breast cancer survivor, it also marks the first time I'll earn my 39 without my high school friend, Liz, cheering for each and every walker from the sidelines. Liz lost her brave battle with breast cancer less than one month after AVON 39 in New York this past fall. She was 43 years old. I still can't believe she's gone, but I also know she'll be with me every step of the way in Boston - and wherever else the Walk takes me in the future.
While I'll be training to get my body ready for the Boston event, I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer. And that's where you come in!
I am required to raise at least $1,800 to EARN MY 39, but I plan to raise much, much more! I hope that I can count on your support!
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. No doubt we all know someone who's been lost to this disease. But I do hope for a world without breast cancer for my Goddaughters and all the daughters and nieces out there. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you’re part of it.
