help men and women discover breast cancer earlier and fund prevention programs.

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is the The Avon Foundation for Women’s largest annual fundraising initiative. This series of nine Walks, held from April to October, raises extraordinary awareness as participants spend an entire weekend walking 39 miles through cities and towns around the country. From 2003 through 2011, the Avon Walks have raised more than $420 million - - funds that are directly saving lives by helping people get the breast cancer care they need regardless of ability to pay, and by helping researchers continue their quest for a cure. 2012 marks the 10th Birthday of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer -- join us!
