Affiliate Marketers Give Back Takes on the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer

by Missy Ward in Affiliate Marketing, Do Good. Feel Good.   14 Comments

For the third year in a row, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back took to the streets with their feet to do their part to fight breast cancer; this time during the 39-mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles.

This year’s team consisted of Brook Schaaf of Schaaf Consulting, Chris Pearson of DIYThemes, Melissa Salas of Buy.com, Kevin Strawbridge of DealTaker.com, Lynette LaPlante a 1-year survivor and me.

After months of fun and sometimes whacky fund raising activities, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back blew past their goal and raised nearly $53,000, earning as them the #5 highest fundraising team spot overall.

After two days of walking (26.2 miles on Day 1 and 13.1 miles on Day 2), we wound up with 12 team-wide blisters, dozens of muscle aches, 1 broken nail, tons of hilarious video footage (coming soon) and a sense of pride and accomplishment knowing that we were doing something great to help fight a disease that has affected so many women and men.

A full recap of the walk will appear in the next issue of FeedFront Magazine.

I am proud of my team and I thank them so much for volunteering their time. I’m also very grateful to all of our sponsors and supporters who helped us reach our fundraising goal.

If you are interested in walking with Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back, please get in touch with me. We are tentatively scheduled to walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago on June 5-6, 2010.
