Experience How The 3-Day Does Glamping

Last fall, Susan G. Komen® announced a new Bold Goal to reduce the number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. Now, we need your help to recruit new walkers to the 3-Day, so we can make this Bold Goal a reality. In return, you can experience a VIP slumber party that will give you and your friends an extra special 3-Day adventure.

Have we piqued your interest? Here’s how it works! If you recruit two first-time walkers by April 19 to join you on the 3-Day, we’ll arrange for you to have a VIP slumber party together on the event, complete with a large tent that sleeps up to four people, complete with air mattresses, pillows and phone chargers, plus souvenir pajama pants for you to keep.

Or, if you don’t want to stay at camp, you can choose a reward of two free nights at a 3-Day host hotel for the Friday and Saturday of the event, instead of the slumber party.

Get started by registering for the 3-Day now, then go straight to The3Day.org/Refer for more details, and to get your personal recruitment link and ID. You’ll need these to start recruiting those first-time walkers to register.

But, wait, there’s more! If the first-time walkers you are recruiting live outside one of our 3-Day markets, they’ll get a free plane ticket if they register by April 19 with discount code BYB17. Visit The3Day.org/Bestie for more information about that offer.

If you need more reasons to refer a friend, and recruit new ones to the 3-Day, we have some pretty compelling spelling to show you the way.

R … is for Resting comfortably on a poofy air mattress. You’ll feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud!

E … is for Extra. As in, extra laughs with your friends, extra comfort in your tent, and lots of extra fun!

F … is for Free nights in a hotel, if you decide glamping 3-Day style isn’t your thing.

E … is for Exclusive, like the extra exclusive 3-Day pajama pants you’ll be lounging in.

R… is for “Really? What are you waiting for?” Recruit a friend and starting planning your 3-Day now!

We know this Bold Goal is going to take everything we have and we can’t do it alone. Every step, every mile, every dollar makes an impact. Bring a friend to the 3-Day this year and you’ll help Komen achieve their Bold Goal. You will be More Than Pink™.

These graphics can also be printed and used in your other fundraising efforts. Print them on stickers and attach one to a follow-up fundraising letter to catch potential donors’ eyes. Make them into buttons and have team members where them at your fundraising event to brag about hitting their goal, or encourage people to keep contributing.

Make the Most of February

February gets a bad rap sometimes, especially because it’s the shortest month of the year. Even with only 28 days, it packs a lot of punch! It has already hosted the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day and more, and we still have Mardi Gras on the horizon! If you haven’t made the most of February, there’s still time though. Here are some fun and simple ways to make the most of the rest of your month…

Get outside!

Much of the country is experiencing milder temperatures than usual for this time of year, and there is no excuse not to celebrate warmer weather, especially when it’s happening in what is usually the heart of wintertime. If you can, go for a walk with friends this weekend! It will get you training out in the fresh air; plus new scenery can lead to great brainstorming for fundraising ideas.

Give one more fundraising push

Try to end the month on a high note with your fundraising! We have loved hearing from our 3-Day walkers who have already hit their fundraising goal for 2017, but there is still plenty of time left for everyone. Check out our exciting and creative fundraising ideas here on the blog, plus on Pinterest, or share one of the cute graphics above on social media to help give a boost!

Practice your acceptance speech

We think every 3-Dayer deserves an award, and this weekend you can practice your speech. The Academy Awards are this Sunday, so get your 3-Day team together and host a watch party! It’s a cozy and relaxing way to spend a Sunday night, and the red carpet is always a glamorous affair.

Let the good times roll

Mardi Gras is right around the corner, and if that’s not an excuse to do a little indulging, we don’t know what is! Our Mardi Gras themed pit stops are always a blast on the 3-Day so if you’re a member on a Mardi Gras-themed crew team, or you want your walking team to be blinged out at the 3-Day, look for deals on beads, feathers and more at local stores. There will also likely be fun culinary events and more in your local neighborhood. It’s the perfect way to end the month!

Plan a trip

You can also give yourself something to look forward to next month by planning a spring trip. Spring breaks are coming up, and it’s the best time of year to head for warmer weather. Plan a hiking or camping trip and you can still keep your 3-Day training on track, or take some much-deserved time off with a relaxing beach day. Knowing that there’s sunshine ahead will help you get through the last weeks of winter with ease.

ShopKomen.com has outfits and accessories for every occasion that you can wear now, and on your 2017 walk. Plus, a little bit of pink is sure to brighten even a February day.

Do you have anything fun planned for the last few days of the month?
