Walking Warriors 2nd Annual Walk to Battle Breast Cancer

Walking Warriors 2nd Annual Walk to Battle Breast Cancer

We are are a 100% volunteer organization.  

A dedicated group of former Avon39 Walkers who banned together in 2018 to continue the fight against breast cancer.  We started raising funds in late 2017 and training in early 2018.  We trained for three months, walking in and around Washington, DC.  On walk day, May 5, 2018, we had 39 folks walking, some ten miles, most walked 20 miles.  It rained on and off, we were a fierce and determined group and we finished by 4pm.  When all was said and done we raised $100,000!

Several team members planned and lead our training routes.  We tracked the funds raised, manually, without any fees charged.  Team members picked up the minimal expenses we incured the first year.  We each paid indiviually for our team shirts.  Our sponsors underwrote our breakfast, snacks and we had volunteer nurses on hand, plus Zumba and Yoga instuctors to stretch out our weary muscles.  Even the DJ donated his time.  

We are are a 100% volunteer organization.
