I did the 2-day walk a couple of years and wanted to do it again BUT have some concerns about how much of the money we raise goes to helping.  I am wary of Komen and am wondering if the Avon Walk is reputable?  If this is a contentious issue, please feel free to send me a private message.  Thanks!

Hello MamaTete, and welcome to Breastcancer.org.

You'll see other threads in this forum by members who have participated in Avon walks, and and you may also want to research further at the Avon Foundation financials page.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my post.

I read through the 10 pages of threads and did not find one that specifically discussed the Avon Fdtn. and how they use the money (maybe I missed something?).  When I checked the link you provided, it showed a pie chart in which 25% of the money goes to fundraising (this includes the cost of hosting the walks?) - that seems very high.  Does anyone have an opinion on that?
