AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer is a series of weekend fundraising events in support of the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. Since its founding in 1992, the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has raised and awarded more than $840 million worldwide for access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved.
