With a Southern ambiance all its own, the Queen City's broad, tree-lined streets and majestic homes provide a beautiful scenic backdrop for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Participants will walk up to 26.2 miles on Saturday, and 13.1 miles on Sunday making a total of 39.3 miles over two days to fight breast cancer. Each participant must raise $1,800, although the average is $2,000. Funds are distributed locally by the Avon Foundation  for education, research, diagnosis, treatment, and support.
