Ms. Marion W Simmons
Thanks for visiting my Avon Walk page. This year marks my 8th year participating in the Avon Breast Cancer walk. Thanks to generous support of many people, I have raised over $16,500 to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade's mission of providing access to care and finding a cure.
On the weekend of May 4th I will be just one of thousands of people that will be walking over 39 miles in Washington DC 2013 to raise awareness of the cause and educate even more people.
The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. Although I have no personal connection to breast cancer, I am committed to making a difference. I'm required to raise a minimum of $1,800 to participate, but I plan to raise much more! To do this, I need your help and the help of many others - to reach my goals, and I'm hoping that I can count on you to be part of my support team.
You can make a tax deductible donation to my fundraising campaign right here on the website by clicking on the pink "Donate Now" button. If you prefer to write a check, just contact me and I'll send you the information and form.
Thank you for your support,
Marion Woodfork Simmons
