Breast Cancer 3•Day Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
San Francisco Nov. 7-9

It is November 24, 2003. I have just completed the last walk of the year for breast cancer. This year I walked in 8 Avon Walks for Breast Cancer (2 day, 40 mile events) around the country and raised $76,000 for the Avon Foundation. I also walked in 3 3-Day Walks (3 day, 60-mile events) in California and raised $35,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the National Philanthropic Trust. My goal this year was to raise $100,000 for the cause and I exceeded that. My total for the 6 years that I have been fundraising for breast cancer is $320,000. The official miles walked this year was 500 and my total walking miles (including training and events) since May 1998 is now over 6500 miles! This whole experience has certainly evolved and continues to do so. I will be making my decision about next years events after a little "rest", but my plan is to continue to challenge my body and continue my fundraising efforts on behalf of the breast cancer cause.  Thank you for coming to this website, and for your support. I continue to feel honored to have you share the journey with me.

With appreciation,

Barbara Jo Kirshbaum
