We're a community of dedicated women and men who, each year, pour our hearts and souls into taking on an incredible challenge: a three-day, mile journey. We do it for ourselves, our sisters, mothers, fathers, daughters and friends. Because we can't sit idly by watching while breast cancer still exists in the world. It's a mile walk over the course of three days. We stay together as a community on Friday and Saturday nights, either in a hotel or glamping outside. Both options include meals, a 3-Day lounge, massage chairs and lots more! The route is fully supported by an experienced and energetic crew who will keep you safe and cheer to you the finish line! Bring your favorite water bottle we have plenty of stations to refill it all weekend long! It may be hard, but it's not as hard as breast cancer.
Commit 3 Days for the Ones You Love
Komen 3-Day is a challenging walk of up to 20 miles per day for three days. In order to be able to complete the distance, it is important to start months in advance and steadily increase your distance walked. This will train your muscles, toughen your feet, and allow you to choose the best gear for the walk. You may have access to local training groups for the 3-Day walk, or you may have to do it on your own. While solo walking can be effective, many people like having walking companions. You can try to enlist your friends and family, or you can check into local walking clubs and Meetup or Facebook walking groups. Also, check with local running clubs for marathon training groups in your area.

Walkers must be at least 16 years old or be accompanied by an adult. Crew members must be at least 18 years old, and volunteers must be at least 10 years old. A program called Youth Corps allows children ages 10—16 who have been affected by breast cancer to get involved, by providing the walkers with a youthful, energetic helping hand. The Komen 3-Day supports its participants before the event by providing coaches, training assistance, fundraising advice and a personal fundraising webpage.
