Please Support Me in the NYC Avon Walk Against Breast Cancer in 2014

I am going to be walking with the Affiliate Marketers Give Back team for 39.3 miles around New York City in October 2014 for the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer.

The Avon Walk For Breast Cancer in New York City is taking place October 18-19, 2014.

I completed the 39.6 mile walk in 2012 – check out the Avon Walk pictures from 2012 as well as my recap of the walk.

You’re wondering how you can help? Great – there are a couple ways to fight breast cancer with us.

I’d love if you’d support me in the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer with a donation of any size. I’m trying to raise $10,000 towards our team goal of $25,000.

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.

My Affiliate Summit Co-Founder, Missy Ward, is going to be doing the Avon Walk in Boston in May 2014. How about joining her team and supporting her, too.

Affiliate Summit East 2012 Raises Over $17k (So Far) in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

The Race to Affiliate Summit East 2012, a dailymile challenge where Affiliate Summit will donate $1 to benefit the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in support of Affiliate Marketers Give Back team for each mile cycled, run, swam, or walked through the challenge, is running through 7/31/2012.

Affiliate Summit East 2012There are currently 61 folks involved in the challenge, and the top ten competitors have already accumulated 10,819 miles.

Overall, there have been 17,087 miles tallied by all of the participants, so it’s $17,087 raised (so far).

I am at #9 right now (see my dailymile profile) with 736 miles, and still hanging on in the top ten. But my greater emphasis on running over cycling has me at risk of dropping away. Maybe I need to get on that bike more.

Here are the top ten affiliate marketing exercisers, as of July 5, 2012.

dailymile syncs with Garmin devices, Nike+ device and iPhone app, as well as a number of iPhone and Android clients.

You can also manually enter your cycling, swimming, running, and walking efforts.
