What is the Komen 3-Day for the Cure?
The 3-Day for the Cure is a 60-mile walk for women and men who want to make a personal difference in the fight to end breast cancer. Participants commit to raise at least $2,300 and spend several months training to prepare for the event. They devote the entire three-day weekend to the cause. There are many combinations of teams—mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, life long friends and total strangers. Whoever you walk with, you’re bound to form an incredible relationship with one another after experiencing this event together.
Participants walk an average of 20 miles a day during the event and are provided meals, snacks, drinks, shower facilities, tents, safety guidelines and 24-hour medical support—all resources needed for a safe and memorable experience.
Proceeds from the 3-Day for the Cure help pay for vital global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. The event is held in 14 cities across the country in 2011.
