After the Fourth of July holiday, we could all use a pick-me-up to add some excitement to the rest of our work week. Luckily for you, we have one!
Today only (Thursday, July 6, 2017), use the code 20FOR20 when you register as a 20-mile walker for the Michigan 3-Day, and your registration will only be $20!
Every action―big or small―makes a difference in our fight. So even if you can’t walk all 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, you can still make an impact as a 20-mile walker! Walk for one day, 20 miles and meet the people who are ending breast cancer. Use code 20FOR20 through 11:55 p.m. CT tonight at The3Day.org/20mile.
This is the perfect opportunity for new walkers, or for those who can’t make the full 3-Day walk this year. Come and join our 3-Day family in 2017!
But you don’t have to take our word for it! Our Michigan coaches and the whole 3-Day team love our 20-mile walkers, too! Here’s why they want you to join us for this 1-day, 20-mile, amazing experience.
“The 20-mile walker program can be just the beginning for you,” promises Gina Guerreso, Michigan Crew and Volunteer Coordinator. “The beginning of your own fabulous 3-Day journey, the beginning of taking part in the magic of this event. Every mile counts and makes a huge impact in our fight against breast cancer. I guarantee that once you experience the 3-Day, you’ll be back for more!”
Michigan 3-Day Coach Heather Snyder seconds that.
“This is the chance to get in on this inspiring event. A 20-mile walker can experience the 3-Day magic in a condensed manner, while still enjoying so many of its greatest moments. I equate the 20-mile option to a day at an amusement park. From start to finish, that is totally possible!”
Philadelphia 3-Day Coach Tisho Jessop also sums it up perfectly.
“I’m a huge fan of the sampler platters of life (buffets, cruises, drink flights) so what I love about 20-mile walker is the ‘test drive’ nature of it. It’s the perfect opportunity to try out the 3-Day. First, you get to learn how to fundraise and train. Then you get just a taste of the support we have out on the route, the fun we have in camp, the emotions in our Closing Ceremony and most importantly you get to meet our amazing 3-Day participants. All in 24 hours! It’s an awesome way to dip your toe in and see how remarkable this event really is.”
“The 20-mile walker option is great for many reasons. For people who work or have unavoidable commitments on Friday or Saturday, they have the freedom to join us on Sunday and experience the final stretch of the 60-mile journey amidst a very determined community of walkers,” says Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day Coach Gayla Cruikshank.
“Some people don’t realize that they can walk 20 miles in one day. This feat gives their feet the chance to prove they can! Also, fundraising $750 for a one-day event isn’t as daunting as raising $2,300 for three days. Either way, telling your donors you’re walking 20 miles in a day, whether it’s for one day or three days in a row, will inspire them to give generously.
“Once you walk your first 20 miles, you’ll be HOOKED and ready to sign up for all three days.”
