The 2014 Susan G. Komen 3-Day® season opened yesterday on a stunning morning in Michigan, as walkers and crew gathered with excitement for the first event of the year. Participants were met with some new event elements, and everyone embarked on Day 1 of walking with enthusiasm and anticipation. On return to the Komen 3-Day Camp, there were even more surprises in store (and some familiar favorites, like the Bank of America massage chairs). The 3-Day® camp show was enjoyed by all, and our friends from Bank of America took a few special moments to recognize the top fundraisers for the Michigan 3-Day.
Top Fundraising Team – BC Babes – $103,190 raised
The 54 members of team BC Babes (captained by Beth Northman) celebrates its 10th year as team, during which it has raised an amazing $854,534.
Top Crew Fundraiser – Mark Nadeau – $8,815 raised
Kathy has participated in 12 3-Day events over the last 8 years, and has raised a lifetime total of $237,934. Kathy walks for her husband Lee who is a male breast cancer survivor, and she is the captain of team Breast Man Walking.
Our gratitude goes to all of these extraordinary participants, and all Michigan 3-Day walkers and crew members for their dedication to a world without breast cancer.
