March 39 miles in Pink

AVON 39 is the walk to end breast cancer

AVON 39 is a challenge.
AVON 39 is an attitude.

AVON 39 is a weekend like you’ve never had before.

On the road to 39 miles. No matter how far you walk, you’ll crush fear, doubt and breast cancer – one persistent step and donation at a time.

By stepping up to the AVON 39 challenge, you’re making life better for breast cancer patients in your community and across the nation. Net funds raised will provide direct impact in the area where the event takes place and help make sure that care programs nationwide, as well as national research programs, have adequate resources to make the most progress possible to help obliterate breast cancer.

Flex your fundraising muscle! Never asked for a donation before? No problem. We’ll help you become a fundraising powerhouse. Our Fast Track Fundraising shows you how to raise $1,800 in just 60 days. We’ve got online tools to make requesting donations easy. And your personal Walker Coach has tons of tips and event ideas to share.

207,000 39ers got off the couch,
strapped on their shoes, and earned their 39.

6,868,000 equals the number of miles trekked
by 39ers who went the distance to stomp out breast cancer.

$ 550,000,000 was raised
by people dedicated to ending breast cancer forever.

Of course, earning your 39 is a challenge. That’s what makes it worth it. You’ll need strength and endurance to walk up to 39 miles over 2 days. Figure out your fitness level, pick a plan and start walking. Ready? Let's go.

Training Plans created by Reebok fitness experts are customized
