Avon Walks for the Rockies on June 26 and 27th !

     This year marks the eighth annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer which starts in Washington, D.C. and draws a 45 state participation each year. It will reach Denver by the 26th and continue on throughout the western states culminating this year in New York City and Charlotte, N.C. Thousands of participants share the walk every year and they have raised more than $7.7 for research in finding a cure for breast cancer and to help patients to fund their care and treatment. 
     You may be aware that Suze Orman is the ambassador for Avon's Foundation for Women but you may not know that she personally raised more than $105,000 alone- the most any walker has ever raised for a single event ! Donations are being accepted for all the remaining events which will occur in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, New York City and Charlotte. For more information about how you can register to walk, volunteer or donate you can click here or you can call 1-888-488-WALK.
     This is one of the many ways that Avon is truly making a difference in the lives of people around the world and have made a commitment to help women most in need.

Very informative, Evelyn. Thanks for posting this. It is heart-watming to know Avon is "making a difference in the lives of people around the world and have made a commitment to help women most in need. They have been around since I was little and I did not know this.

Thanks for sharing this.

Nice to see you here Leona ! Apparently my timing for rejoining Avon as a representative was wonderful. Under Andrea Jung they have started several organizations which basically empower women but also other very key issues as well. I'm very happy to be a part of it and instrumental in helping them achieve their goals as well. How are you coping with the new Live changes ?
