Award-winning actress and honorary chair of the Avon Foundation Reese Witherspoon was a special guest at the sixth annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Washington, D.C., during which $8 million was raised for local, regional and national breast cancer organizations. Ms. Witherspoon joined 3,500 walkers—including nearly 300 breast cancer survivors—on their second day and participated in the closing ceremony. Ms. Witherspoon stopped at the lunch stop at the 10-mile mark and served lunch to the walkers. She also made a special visit at the final rest stop of the day and joined walkers for the final stretch of the route. Remaining Walks in 2008 include Rocky Mountains, CO (June 28-29); San Francisco, CA (July 12-13); Los Angeles, CA (September 13-14); New York, NY (October 4-5); and Charlotte, NC (October 25-26).
