Breast Cancer Events
When people come together united by their commitment to end breast cancer, powerful things can happen. Through the Avon 39 and the Avon Walk Around the World for Breast Cancer, we're raising awareness and funds to support the advancement of breast cancer research, treatment, detection and prevention. Each year, these events give millions of people worldwide the chance to walk together and save lives.
The AVON 39 is a series of seven, weekend-long walk events held each year in major cities across the U.S. Since 2003, more than 180,000 39ers and volunteers have helped to accelerate breast cancer research and ensure that all women and men get the screening, support, and treatment they need.
Launched in 2005, The Avon Walk Around the World for Breast Cancer is a global fundraising effort that takes place each year in more than 50 countries. The initiative encompasses walks, runs, concerts, conferences, and workshops. In many parts of the world, these events help break the cultural, social, medical, and financial barriers to access to care.
