At the midpoint of its 2013 Avon Walk season, more than 7,000 women and men have participated in Avon Walks in Houston, Washington, Boston and Chicago, raising nearly $16 million to fund leading cancer centers, research institutions and community-based organizations in the Walk regions, as well as hundreds of additional grants to breast cancer research and access programs across the country.
Since 2003, more than 187,000 Avon Walk participants have collectively walked more than 6.2 million miles – a total of more than 247 times around the globe. All of that walking and fund-raising has helped the Avon Foundation support more than 3 million mammograms in the United States and award more than 2,300 grants for breast cancer research, clinical care and support services.
