Avon 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer

Avon 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer

My Team, The Pink Turtles & I will be participating in AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. It won’t be easy, but that’s why it's worth it. From now until AVON 39 weekend which is September 9th & 10th, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer. This is where you come in.

Your donations will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. The dollars you pledge will put food on the table of a breast cancer patient and her family. They will enable access to mammograms and medicine, fuel research, and save lives. Need any more reason to click that Donate Now button?

I’m walking with thousands of other 39ers. We’re banding together in solidarity and have one goal: to take breast cancer down. So many sisters and mothers and friends have been lost. We see a world without breast cancer for our daughters and nieces. AVON 39 is a force of change that can’t be stopped. By supporting me with a donation, you’re part of it.

ROAD TO AVON 39 

With the Santa Ynez Mountains as a dramatic backdrop, Santa Barbara 39ers will experience this quintessential coastal California city from the calming coast to the dynamic downtown. From the Mediterranean style buildings to the red-tile roofs, this beautiful city shows off its proud Spanish colonial heritage and its amazing support of AVON 39.

Pink Turtles at the X-Mas 2 Give 5K

Join us at the Christmas 2 Give near Dodger Stadium as we celebrate a healthy lifestyle and support a worthwhile cause.

Christmas 2 Give was created to make a change in the lives of others, therefore this year they will be conducting a shoe drive. That's right, bring any shoes, new or used and lets give to the ones in need.

Make sure to stop by the Pink Turtles booth before the race starts to meet up with your fellow Turtles and do a quick warm-up with me.  (We’ll have people staying at the tent to hold onto any items you don’t want to carry on the 5K).

We'll also be giving away a few Pink Turtles shirts for new members so come by and hang out with us. The Pink Turtles is committed to helping people get motivated and work towards a healthy lifestyle...no fees, no pressure.

We go to these events to celebrate and finish together.

See you there,

Maria
