I am organizing a team to walk in AVON 39 – The Walk to End Breast Cancer in October 2017, and you should join me.
The walk is taking place October 14-15, 2017 and it’s 26.2 miles on the first day, and then 13.1 on the second day.
It’s a way to see New York City like few people ever will – you’ll travel through the Upper West and East Sides, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and Chinatown, along Central Park, Rockefeller Center, and Radio City Music Hall.
There are bridges to cross, too – the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and back and forth on the pedestrian bridge to Randall’s Island.
And you will be doing it for a great cause by helping breast cancer patients in the NYC community and across the nation.
Net funds raised will directly benefit the New York area and help make sure that care programs nationwide, as well as national research programs, have the resources to make the most progress possible to help obliterate breast cancer.
AVON 39 NYC 2016 beneficiaries included…
- Avon Foundation Breast Health Outreach Coordinating Center
- New York University School of Medicine
- God’s Love We Deliver
- Metropolitan Hospital Center
- Newark Beth Israel Medical Center
- Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute
- The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center of Columbia University Medical Center and New York Presbyterian Hospital
$7.6 million was raised for the October 2016 walk in NYC to accelerate breast cancer research; improve access to screening, diagnosis and treatment; and educate people about breast cancer.
No, it’s not easy. You’ll probably get some blisters and ache for a while after. Plus, you need to raise a minimum of $1,800 to walk. And it’s all worth it – this will be my fifth time.
