Enjoy exercising and walking 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day.

Training for the 3-Day by walking counts as plenty of exercise, but we also recommend that you incorporate cross-training into your exercise regimen as well. Doing a wide variety of exercise will ensure you are prepared for your 3-Day experience.

Use Ziploc bags during packing for the Susan G Komen 3 Day to keep your things dry

Ziploc® bags are an essential item to include when you’re packing for the 3-Day – just ask any experienced walker. Pack your clothes in individual Ziploc bags to keep them dry and protected from the morning dew in your tent, and put dusty, worn clothes in them after a day of walking.

Fabulous Fundraising Resources in Your 3-Day Participant Center

You Susan G. Komen 3-Day® Participant Center is chock full of amazing tools and resources to help prepare you for the Komen 3-Day. The best advice I can give when it comes to your Participant Center is to log in sometime when you have a good 30 minutes or more to just explore. Click around on all the different links and discover what goodies are waiting inside.

I could devote a whole series of blog posts to detailing the amazing tools in the 3-Day® Participant Center, but today, I want to focus on a few fundraising gems.

You can find the fundraising resources by logging in, then clicking Fundraise in the left-side navigation menu. susan g. komen 3-Day breast cancer walk blog fundraising tools participant center

This will open a screen that shows you exactly how much you’ve raised and who has donated to you and when. Did you know that your donors can leave you personal messages when they donate (different from the public messages that scroll on your fundraising Honor Roll)? You’ll see them here! And, you can even download a list of your donors, complete with addresses to send those heartfelt thank you notes to. susan g. komen 3-Day breast cancer walk blog fundraising tools participant center
