First, a heartfelt thank you!
Avon’s commitment to the fight against breast cancer has been part of the company’s DNA for 25 years. In 2003, that commitment gave rise to the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer series, and we are so proud of the passionate community that has developed in this time. To the hundreds of thousands of women, men and children who have walked, volunteered, crewed, fundraised, donated and cheered for this cause — our sincerest and most heartfelt thank you. Because of you, AVON 39 has been able to raise more than $646 million dollars toward the fight to end breast cancer.
We are excited to share that Avon will be introducing a new fundraising program in Spring 2018 that will help continue our work with the breast cancer community. This program will build off the success and learnings we’ve gained with the AVON 39 walks, and will engage passionate supporters like you who are committed to this fight against breast cancer. With the transition to this new program, Avon will no longer be sponsoring the AVON 39 event; 2017 was our last season.
We are proud of our beneficiaries and applaud the amazing work they are doing in the breast cancer community. 100% of all net proceeds raised from the 2017 AVON 39 Walk season and any additional funds raised through other fundraising initiatives in 2017 are being granted to these worthy beneficiaries through the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade program.
If you would like to make a donation to any one of our beneficiaries we’ve supported over the years, you can learn more about past grantees in our grant archive.
We hope that each and every one of you who has engaged with us over the years will continue to do so as we head into this new chapter.
We thank you again for your dedication to this incredible community and look forward to your participation in our future programs!
