This year the Susan G. Komen 3-Day kicks off this Friday, October 17 and lasts until Sunday, Oct. 19. Over the course of these three days, women and men from all over the state will walk 60 miles, all the while raising funds for Susan G. Komen. Of the net proceeds from the 3-Day, 75 percent will go to Susan G. Komen’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The other 25 percent will go towards funding local community and breast cancer outreach programs.
The route for the 3-Day will take walkers 15-22 miles per day, spending nights and breaks in the 3-Day camp. Each walker is required to raise $2,300 for the 3-Day in order to walk.
Online registration is now closed, but you can still call 800-996-3DAY to register today.
