Welcome to the final part 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), Part 5 (Letters Q-T), and Part 6 (Letters U – W). Do you have ideas for letters you don’t see here? Share your ideas for each letter here on the 3-Day blog or with us on Facebook. You can also help us spread the word about the 3-Day® by pinning these images on Pinterest, or sharing the ABC’s of the 3-Day album on Facebook. The more people who learn about the 3-Day, the more we can make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer forever.
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.
Young Women Walking or YW², is a special team of 16 to 23 year-old women who raise $750 each, walk one day of the 3-Day event and are critical in helping us spread awareness about breast cancer. Learn more at The3Day.org/yw2.

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.
Now that you know the 3-Day ABC’s, what people, places, or things would you assign to each letter of the 3-Day Crew ABC’s? Let us know!
