I found out I had breast cancer and more friends and now customers started to walk in my name.
Walnut Creek, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) June 15, 2011
Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek spends most of its days trying to get the best deals possible and provide the finest automobiles on the road today to its faithful customers. However, once a year they put their focus on something else entirely.
For the fourth straight year, Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek will participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. One of the largest fundraising programs in the country, the Avon Walks have raised more than $380 million from 2003 to 2010. Mercedes-Benz was able to raise an incredible $11,000 for the cause last year.
For some employees of Mercedes-Benz, the cause is personal.
“My step mother lost her battle with breast cancer four years ago last month and my friends knew how much it meant to me and started walking with me. Now, one year ago this month, I found out I had breast cancer and more friends and now customers started to walk in my name,” said Sonya Hallmark business manager.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer also raises extraordinary awareness as participants spend an entire weekend walking 39 miles through cities and towns around the country. In 2010 alone, thousands of donors supported more than 21,000 Walkers and Crew, raising more than $55 million in the national nine-event series.
This year, Sonya, her fellow Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek employees, friends and now Mercedes-Benz customers, look forward to raising even more money for The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Under the name “Team Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek,” a Pancake Breakfast fund raiser will be held on Saturday June 25th 2011 from 8 to 11 a.m. at the dealership in Walnut Creek.
Sonya has completed all of her treatments and is now ready to do the walk this year for her step mother, daughters, family, friends, herself, and for all the women who have contracted or may contract this terrible disease.
