I LOVE the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer


One of my best friends growing up, Maggy, works for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and is walking in the walk on May 5th & 6th, 2012 in Washington, DC. Over the course of two days she will walk 39.3 miles (26.2 miles on Saturday and 13.1 on Sunday).  She is extremely passionate not only about her job but about the lives of the people who are fighting this deadly disease. Each walker is required to raise $1,800 and she needs your help. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer explains:
The money we raise will provide women and men the breast cancer screening, support and treatment they need regardless of their ability to pay. It will also help power leading-edge research teams across the country, fueling their quest for a cure — all because of you! Are you IN IT TO END IT?
If you or anyone you know has been diagnosed with breast cancer then you know how horrible this disease is. There isn't a cure for cancer -yet- and our donations to the walk will go towards the treatment of an individual or to help fund the research to find a cure. Please help Maggy reach her goal of $1,800 or more. No amount is too little. To find out more about Maggy and to follow her as she trains for this walk, read her blog: http://maggywithay.wordpress.com/ She is honest about the ups & downs of her training and she is hilarious! You will fall in LOVE with her and her blog.

Maggy is one of the funniest, most loyal friends you could ever ask for. She will stick by your side no matter what. She is caring and dedicated to those around her. Since we aren't walking the walk ourselves let's participate by donating to Maggy. I know she will greatly appreciate it. I had to pull out this old picture of us. Maggy is in the orange and I am in the pink. Shout out to Ashley, Sarah and Lydia who are also pictured.


I LOVE the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. What have you fallen in LOVE with today?
