I have a PSA today. I’m writing a post about the Avon Walks for Breast Cancer. Not only are the walks for a good cause, the Avon Foundation for Women is also offering a $20 registration discount to readers of my dad blog. In addition, if you registered for an event by September 16th, you will be entered to win a pink Kodak pocket HD video camera. Just leave a comment below to let me know which city you registered for.
The series of walks are held across the country. Thousands of women and men take part to raise money and increase awareness of breast cancer. Since the first Avon Walks for Breast Cancer in 2003, the Avon Foundation for Women has raised over $390 million through the hard work and dedication of thousands of walkers and breast cancer survivors. The remaining walks this year are in Santa Barbara (September 17-18), New York (October 15-16) and Charlotte (October 22-23).
BTW, you better get ready for the walks now. As a walker, you have the option of walking a marathon (26.2 miles) or a marathon and a half (39.3 miles) over a weekend. That’s a lot of walking! In addition, each walker is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations.
Registration fee is $65 per walker. To receive a $20 discount for one of the remaining 2011 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer events, use the promotion code WALK1 when registering for an Avon Walk. You can chose to go solo or join/create a team. If you can’t take part, please spread the word about the series of walks for breast cancer.
