Mission Statement

The mission of AVON'S Breast Cancer Awareness Crusade is to provide more women- particularly low-income, minority and older women- with direct access to breast cancer educational and early detection services at little or no cost. Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day is a three-day, sixty-mile walk raising much needed funds for this cause.

Description

AVON Breast Cancer 3Day is a revolutionary approach in the fight against breast cancer. It is a 3 day, 60 mile walk from Lake Lanier to Atlanta. In 1999, the Atlanta event had 1875 walkers and raised $2.3 million for the cause.There were 500 crewmembers to support them during the walk. There were incredible Opening and Closing ceremonies with 1000 Volunteers assisting in the preparation and implementation. We celebrated the achievement while raising awareness and millions of dollars for breast cancer programs around the country. The programs are all based on early detection and education. In 2000, there will be a total of seven 3-Days nationwide, increasing the message, raising more money, and moving more individuals beyond their limits.
