The following weekend, on Oct. 19 and 20, the men will join with family and friends to participate in the Avon Breast Cancer Walk through New York City. Their team will walk 39.3 miles over the course of two days in an effort to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research. Over the past two years, the group has raised over $25,000.

“I want to thank everyone for their support over these past three years on our New York Avon Walk journey,” commented Tevlin. “Every dollar counts and donations enable doctors, nurses, counselors, and researchers to continue their vital work and make sure that women and men facing a breast cancer diagnosis can get the care and treatment they desperately need.”
For those who are unable to attend the event, or who would like to make a contribution, the link to make a donation is available online here.
