Cardno ChemRisk Employees Participate in Avon 39 Walk in Chicago
June 3rd and 4th, three employees of Cardno ChemRisk participated in the Avon walk to end breast cancer. The Avon walk to end breast cancer occurs in seven US cities every year and asks each participant to raise at least $1800 and to walk 39.3 miles over the course of two days. It started in 2003 and to date has raised over $600 million. This is Laura Beth’s second year walking in memory of her Grandma Schwab, who lost her battle to breast cancer 20 years ago, and in honor of her sister-in-law, Hannah, who was diagnosed two years ago (and who is doing great!). This year #TeamHanna (Laura Beth Miller, Laurie Armijo and Stacey Benson) raised over $11,000 and completed all miles of the walk in Chicago. The Chicago event collectively raised over $3.1 million. The money raised for this event will be used to “accelerate breast cancer research; improve access to screening, diagnosis and treatment; and educate people about breast cancer”.
