On Sunday, September 30, 2018 – Team Avon took part in the 27th annual Canadian Cancer Society CIBC Run for the Cure. Avon Associates came together in the fight against breast cancer proving, once again, that Avon is a company with heart.
The event gathered more than 82,000 Canadians in 56 different communities, raising an estimated $16.2 million for the breast cancer cause. Everyone in attendance witnessed an exciting surprise when Avon Canada President, Goran Petrovic and Director of Marketing, Roberta Lacey, revealed a $100K donation to the Canadian Cancer Society to support the fight against breast cancer.
Avon and its affiliated teams raised a total of $14,177 for the breast cancer cause, exceeding its fundraising goal. This accomplishment would not have been possible without Avon’s dedicated network of Representatives and Associates who showed their support from coast to coast, raising breast cancer awareness through Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade initiatives.
