Avon’s 130 Million Steps Campaign Facts
- Avon, a global company specially catered to women, just celebrated its 130 year anniversary and initiated the 130 Million Steps Campaign to highlight their commitment for breast cancer awareness.
- Both Cebu and Davao joined the Avon’s Walk of Awareness. It was held in People’s Park in Davao on October 22 while the Cebu leg was held in Plaza Independencia on October 23.
- The Avon’s Walk of Awareness was led by Rocco Nacino, Jim Saret, and Toni Saret.
- According to Jim Saret, “The Walk of Awareness is our personal contribution to the cause. It is also our way of encouraging everyone to walk for a purpose for the whole month of October. This is a great opportunity for men and women to share their hopes with those who are affected by breast cancer.”
- For Toni Saret, “Health is always of utmost importance. Making every step count raises awareness on the fight against this deadly disease. Early detection remains to be the closest thing to a cure. In the meantime let’s help all cancer patients by joining the walk.”
