Valentine’s Day is here! That means it is a time of love and appreciation and happiness…and that doesn’t have to be only about romance. We feel SO much love throughout the year from 3-Day friends and family. That love is based in support and shared commitment, teamwork and inspiration, much of which is gained during our 60-mile journey over our 3-Day weekends throughout the year.
There is plenty of love thrown around during our time together on the 3-Day. To give you a little taste of that love during this chilly winter season, our 3-Day team is sharing what they love most about the 3-Day…and all of you!
I love the community. I have participated in a lot of other events and walks over the years and there’s no other community like ours. We call the 3-Day a FAMILY for a reason!
Hands down what I love most about the 3-Day is the people who make up our amazing community. From walkers to crew to volunteers to the staff, vendors, partners, and even the strangers who come out and cheer along the route. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by so many people who are working to make the world a better place.

The thing I love most about the 3-Day is that feeling you get on Sunday after the Closing Ceremony. It’s like graduation! You get to see everyone with their old and new friends, family and loved ones. It’s fun to see everyone so rightfully proud of what they’ve done.
I love the moments before the Opening Ceremony when people start arriving and they’re reuniting for the first time since last year’s 3-Day. There’s so much excitement!
The 3-Day is a 60-mile-long journey, but it is also a journey of the heart. Filled with love, kindness and pure magic. On the 3-Day, you are overwhelmed and empowered in the most positive ways imaginable. You experience something that defies explanation. You are challenged, inspired, pushed harder and appreciated more than you have before. It is a magical thing and I wish I could bottle up this love and sprinkle it all year long!
What do I love most about the 3-Day? It’s simple: The people!
The participants, my co-workers — we are all working together to make the world a better place.
I just love how I feel when I’m at the 3-Day! The energy, love, support, compassion, sense of family…it really takes me to another level mentally! It’s a good place to spend three days!
