states and many other countries, including more than 1,700 breast cancer survivors. This large, diverse group was united by their shared desire to eradicate breast cancer and help those touched by the disease.

During an Avon Walk weekend, on Saturday participants have the choice of walking 13.1 or 26.2 miles. Both walkers and volunteer crew spend Saturday night at the "Wellness Village," featuring two-person sleeping tents, hot showers, prepared meals and support services. On Sunday, walkers complete another 13.1 miles that culminates in a meaningful closing ceremony and the presentation of local grants.

The Avon Walk series is a project of the Avon Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity, and funds raised are distributed by the Foundation to advance access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved. During the 2007 Avon Walk closing ceremonies, the Foundation immediately awarded a total of nearly 50 grants ranging from $100,000 to over $6 million to leading cancer centers, research institutions and community-based organizations in the Walk regions, with additional grants awarded nationally throughout the year.
