Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Launches Its 12th Season

In her role as managing partner at Hanold Associates, Neela Seenandan guides professional services at the senior level and handles leadership assignments in the field of HR. In addition to maintaining responsibility for the strategic agenda of Hanold Associates, Neela Seenandan contributes to numerous charities, including the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer opened its 12th season with an animated video asking people whether they would “walk” or “walk away” from the battle against breast cancer. Held in eight cities across the United States, the annual event provides a way for participants to raise funds for breast cancer research and prevention efforts.

In 2013, the walk attracted over 15,000 participants and raised close to $40 million. Alongside the 15,000 walkers were the efforts of more than 376,000 donors, whose generous contributions were used to fund community organizations and research and cancer facilities in Walk for Breast Cancer cities. Since its inception in 2003, the walk has boasted more than 192,000 participants, each of which raised a minimum of $1,800 in donations.
