Hi Everyone! We are Jeannette & Jill and we have accepted the challenge to lead Team O – Chicago at the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer! We are excited to reunite our team again... And we are hoping recruite some new team members to walk with us.
We are a team of mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends who share a desire to make a difference – and crush breast cancer. We each have our reasons for participating—whether it’s a personal fight with breast cancer, to honor a lost loved one, or a deep commitment to the cause. Together, we will prepare our minds and bodies, support and encourage each other, raise as much support as we can in this important fight against breast cancer!
Each team member is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations, but we know that with your help, we can do it!
If you'd like to join the team, or just make a quick, easy donation without walking, you can do so here. Anyone can participate, and don't worry if you're not in walking shape yet—we’ll spend the next few months training to prepare for AVON 39.
It's time to become warriors. This is no easy feat, but with your support we can help save and improve lives for cancer patients in Chicago, and across the nation. Hope to see you on our team!
