We hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and we’re happy that so many of you have shared some summertime moments with your Susan G. Komen 3-Day® family! Here are recaps of some of the Komen 3-Day events where we saw you in July!
Since the Michigan 3-Day® is just a few weeks away, packing was high on everyone’s minds in July. Michigan participants gathered for packing workshops in Plymouth and Holland. The latter workshop also included a training walk hosted by Michigan 3-Day team the Coconutter Strutters.
Coach Aubrey met some new and veteran 3-Day walkers at a fundraising workshop held at Elliott Bay Brewery on July 19. They shared their creative fundraising ideas, went over how to use the Participant Center to personalize their fundraising pages, and discussed how to send emails to potential donors.
Over 40 crew members also got together for “All Crew Day,” a fundraiser planned by Philadelphia’s senior crew captains. Crew veterans and newbies sported their favorite pink gear and gathered to learn about the 3-Day, meet their crew teammates and get pumped for the event while raising money for the Philadelphia 3-Day Crew.
The Atlanta 3-Day had its Training Kick-Off Event at the Buckhead New Balance store. It was a great event with about 30 of Atlanta’s most energetic 3-Day walkers. They were led by training walk leaders Renee M. and Shawna L. There was lots of shopping done, and lots of great connections made!
The 3-Day hosted a special event for bloggers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in July. These well-known internet personalities enjoyed a yummy brunch while learning all about the 3-Day. Many of them will be part of the Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day in November, where they’ll be volunteering or walking, and all of them will be talking about their 3-Day experiences on their blogs. Walkers and crew members gathered on a beautiful morning in Southlake to celebrate the Training Kick-Off Event.
Walkers also gathered for the Training Kick-Off Event in San Diego last month. Everyone enjoyed some time with a New Balance rep, then a nice group stretch followed by a 3- or 7-mile training walk. There was even a pit stop along the way, manned by some San Diego crew captains.
August’s meet-ups will include our first two 3-Day events (woo-hoo for Michigan and Twin Cities!), which will have loads of pictures and recaps. Make sure you’re following the 3-Day on social media so you don’t miss a shot.
