On May 23, Empire Digital Products CEO, Scott Brodsky, makes a donation to the Avon Foundation to support his wife, Dawn Brodsky, who is raising money and walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer this year.
The Avon Foundation was founded in 1955 and has now become the largest corporate philanthropy dedicated to women’s causes globally. According to their website, their mission is “focused on breast cancer and domestic violence, as well as emergency and disaster relief, touching lives across the country and around the world.” As of 2009, the foundation has raised and donated over $725 million dollars.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer will take place in eight different locations across the United States through May 2014. Each walk takes places over a two-day period. Participants can walk up to 26.2 miles on Day One and up to 13.1 miles on Day Two. It is entirely up to each participant what distance they’d like to complete.
According to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer’s website, $472 million dollars has been raised and donated since 2003. These fundraising efforts go straight to finding a cure for breast cancer and to increase breast cancer prevention awareness. The following are a few breast cancer statistics:
- Women have a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.
- Every three minutes, there is a new diagnosis.
- This year approximately 230,480 women and 2,140 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
- Annually, 39,520 women and 450 men die as a result of breast cancer.
Scott Brodsky, CEO of Empire Digital Products, is excited to take part and support his wife in her training for the walk. “My wife and I are very happy to be able to help spread awareness about this terrible disease. I strongly believe both men and women should be educated on all the breast cancer facts. My donation as well as my wife’s ongoing efforts is a small contribution to a global initiative that will spread breast cancer awareness and help fund research to find a cure.”
