Fifth Annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Los Angeles Raises $4.3 Million
Date:9/16/2007

see our determination and spirit and be inspired to take action and to raise more money for more prevention, more research and more available services to those who do not have them," Henderson said, "Because there is still a lot to be done before everyone diagnosed with breast cancer can survive."

Following the Opening Ceremony, walkers began their journey and were supported by a volunteer crew every step of the way, buoyed by cheering stations of family, supporters, local residents and the staff of funded organizations such as the John Wayne Cancer Institute and UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center. After completing the first day of walking, encompassing either a marathon or half marathon, participants spent Saturday night in two-person tents in the Avon Walk "Wellness Village" at El Dorado East Regional Park, complete with hot showers, prepared meals and live entertainment. On Sunday, September 16, walkers completed another half marathon (13.1 miles), ending back at Queen Mary Events Park where they were greeted by thousands of family and friends who shared in a celebratory and moving Closing Ceremony.

To participate in the Avon Walk Los Angeles, each walker raised a minimum of $1,800 in donations, which is managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation [a 501(c)(3) public charity]. Funds raised by participants of the Avon Walks are awarded to local, regional and national breast cancer organizations to support five areas of the breast cancer cause, including awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, access to treatment, support services, and scientific research, all with a focus on the medically underserved.

Donations are still being accepted for the Avon Walk Los Angeles, and registration is open for the remaining 2007 Walks: New York (October 6-7); and Charlotte, NC (October 20-21), as well as for the Avon Walk 2008 series. Already completed are the 2007 Avon Walks for Breast Cancer Washington, DC; Boston; Chicago; Denver; and San Francisco.
