AVON Breast Cancer Walk Spring Fling Event

By Jane Sugiyama. CREATED Apr 7, 2014

1 in every 8 women have a chance of getting Breast Cancer in their lifetime.

Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with invasive Breast Cancer.

Women are not the only ones effected, men are also susceptible to Breast Cancer.

AVON will be hosting the First Annual Breast Cancer Walk Spring Fling event on April 26, 2014 to raise funds for a team of ladies who will be participating in the 2014 Breast Cancer Walk in Chicago. 

"Our goal is to raise $5,000, which will help all of us participating in the AVON Breast Cancer Walk in Chicago on May 31st through June 1st. A group of us will be walking thirty-nine miles together during that two day time span. Each person is required to raise a minimum of $1,800 which goes toward Breast Cancer research," Ronda Ackerson, AVON Unit Leader and Organizer. 

Many vendors and crafters will be present at the Spring Fling event including: AVON, Chiropractor Tom Sanberg, Curves, Dove Chocolate, It Works, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Profiles Hair Salon, Scentsy, Tastefully Simple, Thirty-One, Xyngular and many, many more! 

"I lost my maternal grandmother and an aunt to Breast Cancer. My best friend and sister-in-law, as well as one of our very own AVON representatives are survivors of Breast Cancer. This event, as well as the walk, is near and dear to my heart," noted Ackerson. 

Show your support for the community and help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

The Spring Fling event will be held at UAW 652 at 426 Clare Street in Lansing on April 26th from 10:00AM to 4:00PM. Admission is $5.00 which gets you a goodie bag and raffle ticket for gift basket drawings that will occur every thirty minutes.
