Community Corner: The 2013 Avon Walk

For those of you who have participated, the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is a moving event that simply cannot be described by words alone. The Walk is both an individual and group effort; while walkers must tap into their inner reservoirs of strength to complete the walk, they are replenished by the support of strangers cheering them on. Watching the commitment and enthusiasm of walkers and those supporting them along the entire route is an emotional experience for all involved.

It is very important for Avon Foundation grantees to support the Walks. We want to recognize the BHOP agencies that cheered or walked in the Avon 2013 Walks:
