Dedham Woman Walks for Breast Cancer a Second Time

Dedham -

DEDHAM ‚ÄďJoin Tessa Hastings help to raise funds and awareness to¬† defeat breast cancer in the upcoming Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Boston. Tessa will participate in this non-competitive event, which offers the option of completing a marathon and a half (39.3 miles), over the weekend of May 14 and 15.¬† Tessa was inspired to take part in the Avon Walk Boston because as an EMT she has watched countless people struggle through their battles with various diseases and injuries.

The Avon Walks are non-competitive weekend fundraising walks for all fitness levels that require a significant commitment from participants. Each walker is required to raise at least $1,800 in donations and undertake months of training to prepare for the event, which offers the option of walking a marathon (26.2 miles) or a marathon and a half (39.3 miles) over two days.

To support Hastings fundraising campaign, donations can be sent to www.teamtessa.org or call 974-9768.
