Join us for the first ever 3-Day Facebook Meet-Up!

Join us on Tuesday, February 24 at 5:00 p.m. PST (7:00 p.m. CT, 8:00 p.m. EST) for our first-ever Facebook Meet-Up! We’ll be chatting about how you can use the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® website to get you started on your fundraising and training, and how to stay motivated on your Komen 3-Day journey.


How does the 3-Day® Facebook meet-up work? On Tuesday the 24th, around 4:50 p.m., we’ll post a status update on our Facebook page that says something like this:

“Welcome to the 3-Day Facebook Meet-Up! We’ll be answering your questions and sharing tips, tricks and information in this status update in just a couple of minutes. Reply directly in the comments, and don’t forget to reply and chat with everyone else who joins!”

Your 3-Day social media virtuosos, Alyssa and Erin, will be asking questions and commenting back and forth with you as “The 3-Day.” Now what fun is it if nobody chats, right? Be sure to jump in and introduce yourself to other commenters and ask and answer questions, too. You may have to occasionally refresh the Facebook page to see the most recent comments, questions, and replies.

We’ll chat for an hour, and hope you’ll join us! Any questions? Let us know!

A Holiday Greeting from Your Friends at the 3-Day

The candles are lit and the halls have been decked,
And the calendar boxes are nearly all checked.
Our sneakers are hung up; for now, snow boots reign.
(Except out in Cali, where flip-flops remain).
We look back on the year now with this little rhyme,
And the world that we changed, three days at a time.
Through seven incredible, scenic locations,
One foot, then the other, we made our migration.
A Michigan opener, then Twin Cities and Philly,
Seattle and Atlanta (which were both rather hilly),
Dallas/Fort Worth, and to round out the tally,
It was back to the coast for a San Diego finale.
The miles that we trekked totaled 420,
(and on sore, blistered feet, that number was plenty!).
Our 3-Day community—each remarkable walker,
Hard-working crew member, supporter and stalker—
Stood tall and united, committed to answer
The call to a world that is free from breast cancer.
And although the days spent joined in person are few,
The family we’ve built remains strong through and through.
So from us at the 3-Day, whose lives you have touched,
We’ll see you next year, and we thank you so much!
