After a beautiful first day of the 2018 Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day, walkers and crew members gathered in the dining tent as Stephanie from Susan G. Komen® and our friends from Bank of America honored the Michigan 3-Day’s top fundraisers. Join us in congratulating these extraordinary participants!
Our Top Crew Fundraiser is Amy Nadeau, who raised $8,515 for Michigan; and has raised $92,466 in her lifetime. She’s participated for 15 years and this is her 15th event.
Fun Fact: “Half of my Instagram and Facebook friends are people I met through the 3-Day, more than any other group by far. Because, once you’ve done a 3-Day together, you’re friends for life!”
Our Top Individual Fundraiser is Bert Stein, who has raised $18,974 and has raised $261,218 in his lifetime. He’s been participating for 14 years and this is his 14th event.
Fun Fact: Bert has been walking in the Michigan 3-Day since 2005 and has a lifetime fundraising total of over $260K. Bert originally told us earlier this year that it was time for him to retire from the 3-Day. Bert was invited to the Lifetime Commitment Circle in Dallas in June and once he returned he decided that he was coming out of retirement and walking this year. He has raised over $18K in less than a month! Bert is 85 years young.
Our Top Team Fundraisers are the Hines Pink Pathers; who raised an astonishing $68,208. They’ve been a team for 11 years, and have raised a staggering total of $1,198,511. Their Team Captain is Janice Shore, they have 48 members, and are the largest team at the Michigan 3-Day.
Thank you to these fabulous fundraisers and all of the Michigan 3-Day walkers and crew members. You are incredible!
