Congratulations to the 2015 Twin Cities 3-Day Top Fundraisers

After a beautiful first day of the 2015 Susan G. Komen Twin Cities 3-Day last Friday, walkers and crew members gathered in the dining tent as Chrissy Mathews from Susan G. Komen® and our friends from Bank of America honored the Twin Cities 3-Day’s top fundraisers. Join us in congratulating these extraordinary participants!

Top Individual FundraiserTC Top Indiv FR Patricia
Patricia M. walked in her seventh 3-Day this year in the Twin Cities, and she raised a remarkable $15,260 this year. This is the second year in a row that Patricia has held the top individual fundraiser honor, having raised a lifetime total of $86,614 for the 3-Day. To help her celebrate all she has achieved with the Twin Cities 3-Day this year, Patricia’s son flew in from Alaska to support her as a walker stalker along the route.

Top Crew FundraiserTC Top Crew FR Sharon

The top crew fundraiser in the Twin Cities was Sharon G., who raised $3,772 this year. She has participated in the 3-Day five times as a walker, and 2015 marks her third year being on the crew. This year, she is part of the sweep team. In her eight years with the 3-Day, Sharon has raised a remarkable $33,175. Sharon’s dedicated work ethic is apparent not just on the 3-Day, but in her everyday life too: she started working at her job the day after she got out of business school, and although her company has gone through three owners and three building moves, she is still there 39 years later.

Top Fundraising TeamTC Top Team FR Mickey's Hope

The top fundraising team, Mickey’s Hope, “shamrocked” the Twin Cities 3-Day for the seventh year as a team, and has raised $34,907 this year alone. In their history as a team, Mickey’s Hope’s lifetime fundraising total is just shy of $255,000. Team Captain Patrick O’Connor was on hand to accept the top fundraising recognition on behalf of his sixteen teen members.

 

Thank you to these fabulous fundraisers and all of the Twin Cities 3-Day walkers and crew members. Together, you raised an incredible $1.6 million, and brought us all closer to our promise of ending breast cancer forever.
