I am walking in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for a Cure in Washington D.C. October 12-14, 2012.
The Susan G. Komen 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.
Since its inception in 2003, the Komen 3-Day for the Cure has raised nearly $600 million.
3-Day for the Cure net proceeds help pay for vital global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening and treatment. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® paid for more than 600,000 breast screenings in 2009—part of a more than $1.9 billion commitment to research, advocacy and community programs since Komen was founded in 1982.
3-Day for the Cure participants walk an average of 20 miles a day during the event.
