Keeping Abreast — Fall 2005

Avon Grants $150,000 To Zero Breast Cancer

On July 10th, 2005 Zero Breast Cancer Executive Director Janice Barlow gratefully accepted a $150,000.00 check at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer San Francisco closing ceremony at Golden Gate Park. The Avon Foundationís support will help Zero Breast Cancer to contract with a research consultant, continue with the Adolescent Education project, and cover specific operating expenses involved in the development of innovative research into the potential environmental causes of breast cancer. “This grant is a very generous contribution to our work,” says Barlow, noting that Avonís award departs from standard gifts both in the monetary amount and in the flexibility of use for Zero Breast Cancer programs. The grant will enable Zero Breast Cancer to pursue new ideas and develop innovative pilot research and educational projects for which start-up funding is limited. “We are very appreciative to the Avon Foundation for including Zero Breast Cancer as one of the many beneficiaries of the San Francisco Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.” Zero Breast Cancer salutes the nearly 2,000 participants who raised funds and awareness as well!
