Thanks for visiting my Avon Walk page. I’ve committed to participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Santa Barbara, CA. This will be my 6th year walking in the Avon Walk and I am really excited about walking this year. It’s a big commitment, one that will require me to spend the next several months training and fundraising.

I began this walk journey in 2008 because I could no longer sit by and continue to watch friends, family and co-workers be overcome by this deadly cancer. I walk in honor of loved ones that I have lost and loved ones I still have here. Unfortunately my list grows every year of who I walk for because cancer has not been stopped and a cure has not been found. With the money I raise for the walk it will help continue the fight against breast cancer. It will help fund cancer patients who need assistance financially with medical bills and it will be used to fund research to find the cure for breast cancer.

In 2002, I lost a woman that I called Mama Sue. She was not only a mom to her two daughters but a mom to so many. She taught me a lot about life and that we must live everyday! Life isn’t always fair! I walk in honor of her every year because she loved us so much and she was an inspiration to many. I not only walk in honor of Mama Sue but many others and I will be posting their names on here soon.

Breast cancer is a big disease, one that still affects far too many people, and I’m determined to do everything I can to help put an end to it. The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures. I’ll be just one of thousands of people that will walk up to a marathon and a half over a weekend, raising awareness of the cause and educating even more people. 

I can’t do it without your help.

Though I’m required to raise at least $1,800 in donation, I plan to raise much more! 

I hope that I can count on your support. I am IN IT TO END IT, ARE YOU?

You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign right here on the website by clicking on the pink “Donate Now” button. If you prefer to write a check, just contact me and I’ll send you the information and form.

As I prepare for this exciting event, I plan to update this page frequently so that all my supporters can follow my progress, so please visit often. While you’re here, you might want to spend some time on the site to find out more information on why this event is so important, and the organizations and people that will be helped by the money we all raise.

Happy Walking,
Alicia Edquist
