Walking Warriors are a dedicated group of former Avon39 Walkers who banned together in 2018 to continue the fight against breast cancer. The event, Walk to Battle Breast Cancer, brings participants together to complete either a 10 mile or 20 mile walk in and around Washington, DC. As a 100% volunteer organization, Walking Warriors team members plan and lead their traing routes all to support reserach and community programs at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

In 2019, Walking Warriors had 75 dedicated walkers who raised over $110,000. Together with a match from Lombardi Women, the total raised from last year's walk was more than $135,000. Help us raise the bar even higher in 2020!
