Golden Wings
ganga til góðs í New York í október.

Everyone has felt the pain following the struggle one family member has gone through, when fighting the enemy no boundaries knows, cancer. The weekend October 6th - 7th, 2007 the annual Avon walk will be held in New York. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is a series of weekend fundraising events launched in 2003. The 2007 Walks will take place in eight cities from May through October, and we will be participating in the walk through streets of New York. The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer offers a choice of a marathon (26.2 miles) or a marathon and a half (39.3 miles) over a weekend.

Each Walker commits to raising a minimum of $1,800 in donations. These donations will be used to support different research centers dedicated in the search for cure of breast cancer.

We are a few women from Icelandair and Loftleiðir Icelandic, who have decided to participate and do ours bit to raise funds for this worthy cause. We have named our team Golden Wings, inspired by the golden wings in the Icelandair Group logo. We are:

Ásdís Ásgeirsdóttir Sölustjórn Icelandair
Lena Magnúsdóttir Loftleiðum Icelandic
Sigríður Hrönn Helgadóttir flugdeild Icelandair
Svana Kristín Sigurjónsdóttir Sölustjórn Icelandair
Svava Hjartardóttir Sölustjórn Icelandair

From left are Ásdís, Sigríður Hrönn, Lena, Svana Kristín og Svava.

The purpose of this website is to try to get donations for the cause. The donations we will receive from firms and individuals will go undivided to the Avon Walk.  The account for the fund is in Landsbanki  0111-26-21695, kt 241171-4189 ( Lena Magnúsdóttir ). We will publish on the website list of donors.

And we will also try to sell some drawings under the "Uppboð mynda" or auction, where Sigríður Hrönn Helgadóttir (Sissa) will sell some some watercolors sketches. The selling price will also be donated to the Avon Walk.

Hope for your support.
