Walking 39.3 Miles to Fight Breast Cancer

I have some exercise events I plan to do this year, including 5k’s and mud runs, and for the fourth time I will walk 39.3 miles in a weekend to fight breast cancer.

I’m signed up to participate in the Avon 39 – The Walk to End Breast Cancer, which is a 39.3 mile fundraising walk through New York City in October 2016.

This will be my fourth walk – I completed my third AVON 39 in NYC this past October, as well as in 2012 and 2014, and I can’t wait to return to take on this inspiring challenge.

We’ll be walking up and down and all around Manhattan over the two days – we’ll pass through the Upper West and East Sides, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and Chinatown, as well as crossing into Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge and then back across the Manhattan Bridge.

The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.

I’ll be just one of thousands of people who will walk up 39.3 miles over two days, and your help would mean a lot to me.

I plan to raise $20,000 (or more)! I hope that I can count on your support – I would be grateful for anything you could spare.

If you’re interested in doing the walk, please contact me with any questions.
