The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer series is a project of the Avon Foundation for Women, a 501(c)(3) public charity. The Walks will take place in eight cities throughout 2014, each covering 39.3 miles over the span of two days, and raising significant awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. The Avon Walk Santa Barbara takes place September 6-7 2014. The Avon Walks are non-competitive weekend-long fund-raising walks for men and women of all fitness levels. Each of the eight Avon Walks across the country offer participants a choice of walking a marathon (26.2 miles) or a marathon and a half (39.3 miles) over a weekend. The Avon Foundation for Women awards the funds raised to local, regional and national breast cancer organizations that help women and men get the medical care they need—regardless of their ability to pay—and accelerates the work of leading research teams in their quest for improved prevention, detection and treatment. Since its start in 2003, the Avon Walk series has raised more than $500 million. For information or to register for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, call (866) 747-WALK or visit avonwalk.org.
