Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Raises $4.4 Million


Thousands of men and women dressed in everything pink trekked nearly 40 miles and raised more than $4.4 million during this year’s Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. About half of the money raised will fund prevention, treatment, and research organizations in Southern California, with the remaining dollars paying for projects that ensure access to care for those who cannot afford it. Participants started at Chase Palm Park Soccer Field on 9/7, spent the night in pink tents at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, and finished 9/8 at Carpinteria State Beach.
