Texas Swim Academy is forming a team to support a cause close to our hearts, and we’d like you to join our efforts! The members of the management team for Texas Swim Academy have all had personal experiences with breast cancer in our families and our friends. We are actively recruiting a team for the annual  Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to support breast cancer research and work towards a cure.

Not only does Avon donate millions of dollars worldwide to support early detection, prevention and treatment of breast cancer, it also invests over two million every year in support of our local Katy and Houston communities. These funds help underinsured women in our community detect and treat breast cancer and give them a fighting chance.

How can you help beat breast cancer and support your community? Join our Avon Walk team! Each member will have a personal goal to fundraise at least $1,800. Don’t worry, Avon provides excellent resources to help you reach your goals:
