Look Who’s Walking With Me During My 39-Mile Avon Walk to Fight Breast Cancer!

by Missy Ward in Do Good. Feel Good.   &     4 Comments

It's a little over 2 weeks before me and the rest of my team representing “Affiliate Marketers Give Back” head out to Chicago to take on the 39-Mile Avon Walk for Breast Cancer on June 5-6.

As of today, we have raised over $56,000. We have passed our $50,000 goal that we sent for ourselves and we have already beat last year's total which was $53,000. I am so proud of my team and honored to be walking with each and every one of them. (You can find out more about each of the team members by visiting http://en.wordpress.com/tag/2010-walk/ or checking them out on the AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com home page.

In addition to my fabulous teammates, I wanted to share with you some information about the other folks who I will be spending two amazing days with during the walk.

Here are some statistics about our 2010 Chicago Walkers:

  • We come to Chicago from 45 states, St. Croix, USVI, and Denmark.
  • We range in age from 16 to 75. The majority of us were born in the 1970s (32 percent).
  • There are 261 male Walkers – 71 more than in last year’s Chicago Walk.
  • More than 28 percent of us walked in the Avon Walk in 2009!
  • During the Walk Weekend, 18 walkers will celebrate a birthday! There are 7 Walkers who were born on June 5 and 11 Walkers who were born on June 6.
  • Jennifer is the most popular name on the Walk this year; we have 92 Jennifer’s participating! Lisa, Mary, and Karen are close behind, though! Johnson is the most common last name.
  • We have 398 teams, and the largest team has more than 56 participants!
  • The top fundraising team has raised over $85,000! (Affiliate Marketers Give Back is in 5th place right now, but we're scrambling!
  • Our top fundraiser in Chicago has raised over 26,000! (I am in the #2 position at $18,000+ and shooting for that #1 position. I've gotta watch out for Suze Orman, a late entry and catching up very quickly!)

  • And… We have more than 250 breast cancer survivors participating alongside thousands of walkers, walking 39.3 over the weekend because we are In It To End It in 2010!
