On September 12-13, 2015, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back took on another Avon 39 challenge, this time in Santa Barbara, CA.
The Avon 39 is The Walk to End Breast Cancer – 2 Days, 39.3 Miles, 7 Cities Across the United States.
The money raised during the event helps fund research, awareness and education while providing assistance for families currently battling breast cancer. It also supplies much-needed screenings and treatment to detect breast cancer and stop it in its tracks.
This was my ninth breast cancer walk and as captain, I was privileged to walk with these incredible 39’ers: Robert Duva, FinandField.com; Liz Fogg, MyBlingPlace.com; Joel Garcia, Lab6Media.com; Adam Riemer, Adam Riemer Marketing; Kevin Strawbrige, Rackspace and Melissa Salas, WorldOfWatches.com.
Nearly 2,300 other walkers conquered the 39.3 miles to crush breast cancer with us. In total, $5.3 Million was raised in conjunction with this walk with our team coming in fifth place, raising nearly $48,000.
I was excited to see that I was the Top Fundraiser this walk, coming in at $34,513.81 and that Team AMGB came in at #5!
My favorite thing about raising money for the Avon Foundation for Women is that I get to see the dollars I’ve raised be distributed right in front of me, during closing ceremonies.
If you would like to help us take breast cancer down for good, consider joining us on an upcoming Avon 39!
