As many of you know, Breast Cancer awareness, research and treatment is a cause that I've been championing for several years.

In 2007, I started Affiliate Marketers Give Back, in an effort to rally the Affiliate Marketing Industry to help me kick Breast Cancer's ass.

Since then, we've raised over $100,000 in unique ways; one of them being an annual Team-Walk for Susan G Komen for the Cure.

This year, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back will be taking on the 40-mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles on September 12-13.

The Avon Walk exists to raise funds to fight breast cancer and to bring awareness and education about the disease. It's also an opportunity for individuals to join forces and generate significant progress in both the treatment of breast cancer and a quest for the cure – while simultaneously having an extraordinary experience.

Brian Clark of Copyblogger.com and Chris Pearson of DIYThemes have already joined the team and we're looking for some more folks to come along with us.

If you decide to walk with the rest of Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back (“Team AMGB”), you will definitely have an extraordinary experience — we've had a blast each year!

Why You Should Walk with Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back

Below are the reasons why others have joined the team in past years:

  • The loss of a close friend or family member
  • Knew someone who was coping with the disease
  • They faced breast cancer themselves
  • Was worried that one day they may be diagnosed with the disease
  • Wanted to feel that they've done something to help find a cure
  • Gave them a reason to start an exercise regimen and get into shape
  • Was schnookered into it by Missy Ward 🙂


  • While everyone has different reasons to walk, together we are connected by our shared commitment to do our part to end breast cancer.

    We're happy with donations of any amount which can be made through our Team Donation Form.

    I know the economy sucks and now is not the time to be asking for money. However, if you find it possible to help in any way, I'd be forever grateful.

    Hey Jayme,

    I wish I knew someone that could sponsor you. All of the walkers on our team actually pay their own travel expenses.

    What's a check? What if I just send you money via paypal and you just donate it for me?

    I'm happy to do that for you Jim, but then it's not tax deductible for you.

    5 Jim Kukral July 1, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    We need paypal so I can donate. The Kuk don't do credit cards online 🙁

    Yay! Missy & Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back ! ! What a great event (and ONLY 2 days this year!) Very rewarding and a cause that touches us all.

    It doesn't look like I can walk this year — I'll be out of town that weekend — but am there in spirit and am still an enthusiastic Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back supporter!
