Each January, people make New Year’s Resolutions that are hard to stick too. One of the top resolutions is always working towards “getting healthy,”—whether that means eating better, exercising or shedding pounds.
The Avon Walks for Breast Cancer can help provide the needed motivation to keep ones resolution. In 2013, there are eight Avon Walks happening a crossed the US (Houston, DC, Boston, Chicago, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, New York, Charlotte). Each Avon Walk for Breast Cancer takes place over the course of two days and totals 39.3 miles (a marathon and a half!). While it is a noncompetitive event--having a set training program to reach this goal is still highly encouraged to increase one’s endurance.
Eloise Caggiano, a breast cancer survivor and has a passion for fitness as a marathon finisher. In January 2005, at the young age of 33, Eloise was diagnosed with breast cancer. With no family history of cancer and a healthy and active lifestyle, the diagnosis was a true shock. After five surgeries, four months of chemotherapy, and losing both her left breast and her signature long hair, Eloise came through the experience successfully thanks to the great care of her doctors as well as the endless love and support of her friends, family and coworkers. Eloise celebrated her seven-year “cancerversary” in 2012 and is proud to be putting both her professional expertise and personal experience to good use at the Avon Foundation for Women, which provides her with a fulfilling career and the ability to use her own breast cancer battle to help others.
