In 1992, Avon Foundation for Women created the Breast Cancer Crusade in order to help prevent, treat & hopefully one day eliminate Breast Cancer. The Breast Cancer Crusade partners with programs & organizations not only in the United States, but all across the world. “The Crusade supports awareness and education, screening and diagnosis, access to care, support services and scientific research.” (Avon Foundation for Women, 2017)

One way, that Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade raises money each year, is by going across the United States in 7 different cities hosting Avon 39 Walk. The Avon 39 is all about uniting men & women who want to make a difference in their community with one goal in mind- End Breast Cancer Forever!
