3 Simple Reasons to Re-Commit to the 3-Day in 2019

60 miles is no small distance. And we are less than three months from that first 60-mile, 3-Day walk of 2019. Have you signed up to #Commit3Days in 2019? We need you! Come walk with us!

There is still plenty of time to get ready and become a part of the 3-Day family this year. Whether this would be your first 3-Day, or you’re coming back after taking a few years off, this is the perfect year to recommit. There are so many reasons to join in.

It is the farthest you can go in the fight against breast cancer.

Yes, 60 miles is a long way. It is hard. But it’s not as hard as breast cancer. And if you want to make a real difference in the fight against breast cancer, there is no better place than on the 3-Day. Since it began in 2003, the 3-Day has had more than 500,000 participants, all of them truly dedicated to a world without breast cancer. The money that has been raised (more than $848 million so far!), and that you will raise, has helped fund 2,500 research projects and 480 clinical trials, all in conjunction with the work that Susan G. Komen is doing nationwide. Did you know that every day 582 people receive a free Komen-funded screening and 90 people receive Komen-funded treatment assistance? Every day. You could be part of making that difference.

It is an experience like no other.

For first-time 3-Dayers, something they hear over and over is that you “just have to experience” the 3-Day in order to feel its true power. From the personal stories you will hear during Opening Ceremony, to taking your first steps on your 3-Day journey to welcoming the last walker home at the end of your long days, to dancing in celebration of your journey completed…these are memories you will hold forever. And they’re memories that can only be made at the 3-Day. It is a wholly unique experience and one you will never forget.

There is no time like today.

Why put off to tomorrow what you could do today? If you have been thinking about joining the 3-Day or have seen walkers go by in your neighborhood for years, the time to join them is NOW. If you are worried about the training or the fundraising, know that we have local teams of coaches and long-time participants who are here to support you. You have a community of hundreds of people behind you, and even if you don’t live in the city in which you’re walking, they are still there. You can connect with other walkers and crew on social media and through the coaches for your 3-Day.

We will help you succeed. We will help you go farther than you’ve ever gone before in the fight against breast cancer. What are you waiting for? Commit 3 Days. Join us in 2019.
