My Birthday Wish – Your Help in Fighting Breast Cancer

by Shawn Collins on April 27, 2012

Enter Sandman! No, it’s not time to go to sleep. I’m just reminding myself that, while I’m 42 today, I am younger than the still phenomenal New York Yankees closer, Mariano Rivera.

And that’s the song they play at Yankee Stadium when he comes in to close a game.

I just saw him pitch a few days ago for a Yankees win against the Texas Rangers, and it got me thinking how thankful I am to feel healthy at this advanced age.

I am harnessing that youthful vigor by walking with Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back for 39.3 miles around New York City in October for the 10th Anniversary of the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer.

The Avon Walk For Breast Cancer in New York City is taking place October 21-22, 2012. The path goes from Hudson River Park’s Pier 84 to Randall’s Island and back again.

But how do you come in? Well, there are a few ways to fight breast cancer with us.

I’d love if you’d support me in the Avon Walk For Breast Cancer with a donation of any amount. I’m trying to raise $25,000 towards our team goal of $80,000.

The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those that most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.

Also, we need affiliate marketers, as well as their friends and family, to join us out there on the walk or at our cheering station.

More details on joining or supporting the team: 2012 Affiliate Marketers Give Back Walk to #SaveTheBoobies is On!

And if you can’t make it to NYC or spare a donation, there is another opportunity to help just by exercising.

Affiliate Summit has created a dailymile Challenge where we will donate $1 in support of the Affiliate Marketers Give Back team for each mile cycled, run, swam, or walked (we’re approaching $10,000 already).

So please donate any amount in my name or join our exercise challenge, or else you don’t get a piece of my birthday cake.

Here are videos from some of my buddies to try and persuade you: an accordion guy, plastic bag man, and some dude in front of the Taj Mahal.
