Maria & Team Muffin Walk Again!


I am participating, along with my team of walkers, Muffin & Co, in the AVON 39 The Walk to End Breast Cancer. From now until the weekend of the walk, I’ll train to strengthen my body to walk over 39 miles in two days. I’ll also be raising funds to crush breast cancer. I hope that I can count on your support! You can make a donation by clicking here to go to my Avon 39 webpage and then click the “Donate Now” button. Please be as generous as you can… and thanks.
