On September 12-13, 2015, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back took on another Avon 39 challenge, this time in Santa Barbara, CA.
The Avon 39 is The Walk to End Breast Cancer – 2 Days, 39.3 Miles, 7 Cities Across the United States.
The money raised during the event helps fund research, awareness and education while providing assistance for families currently battling breast cancer. It also supplies much-needed screenings and treatment to detect breast cancer and stop it in its tracks.
This was my ninth breast cancer walk and as captain, I was privileged to walk with these incredible 39’ers: Robert Duva, FinandField.com; Liz Fogg, MyBlingPlace.com; Joel Garcia, Lab6Media.com; Adam Riemer, Adam Riemer Marketing; Kevin Strawbrige, Rackspace and Melissa Salas, WorldOfWatches.com.
Nearly 2,300 other walkers conquered the 39.3 miles to crush breast cancer with us. In total, $5.3 Million was raised in conjunction with this walk with our team coming in fifth place, raising nearly $48,000.
I was excited to see that I was the Top Fundraiser this walk, coming in at $34,513.81 and that Team AMGB came in at #5!
