The ABCs of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day – Part 5

It’s time for part five of the ABC’s of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. This special alphabet is made up of 26 people, places or things you’ll encounter on the Komen 3-Day. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Part 1 (Letters A – D), Part 2 (Letters E – H), Part 3 (Letters I – L), Part 4 (Letters M – P) and don’t forget to share your ideas for each letter here on the 3-Day blog or with us on Facebook.

It’s a peaceful, contemplative place, set apart from the bustle of camp, where you can quietly honor those who have passed. Each 3-Day city receives a new white tent for participants to write their sentiments on, and all of the white tents are placed on display at each event, to serve as a traveling tribute to those we have lost.

This “tent city” is truly a sight to behold, and many participants turn up the fabulousness even more by personalizing their tents with festive decorations – everything from plastic flamingos to colorful bras to inspirational banners. The occupants of the best decorated tent are awarded a special legacy pin at the 3-Day tent decorating contest.
