A Holiday Message from the 3-Day

In two thousand eighteen, the 3-Day shared with me…

3DAY_PHILADELPHIA_2018-515

Twelve walkers jumping

Eleven Youth Corps kiddos (actually there were dozens!)

Ten delicious Grahamwiches

Nine awesome photo opps

Eight super cool Crew members

Seven amazing host cities

Six arms a-flexing

Five Santa’s helpers

Four awesome costumes

Three sweep vans sweeping

Two aching feet

And one commitment to a world free of breast cancer.

From all of us at the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®, we send our humble and profound gratitude to every walker, crew member, volunteer, donor and supporter. Your presence in our special little pink corner of the world is better than all the presents under the tree. Thank you, and happy holidays!

A Holiday Greeting from Your Friends at the 3-Day

The candles are lit and the halls have been decked,
And the calendar boxes are nearly all checked.
Our sneakers are hung up; for now, snow boots reign.
(Except out in Cali, where flip-flops remain).
We look back on the year now with this little rhyme,
And the world that we changed, three days at a time.
Through seven incredible, scenic locations,
One foot, then the other, we made our migration.
A Michigan opener, then Twin Cities and Philly,
Seattle and Atlanta (which were both rather hilly),
Dallas/Fort Worth, and to round out the tally,
It was back to the coast for a San Diego finale.
The miles that we trekked totaled 420,
(and on sore, blistered feet, that number was plenty!).
Our 3-Day community—each remarkable walker,
Hard-working crew member, supporter and stalker—
Stood tall and united, committed to answer
The call to a world that is free from breast cancer.
And although the days spent joined in person are few,
The family we’ve built remains strong through and through.
So from us at the 3-Day, whose lives you have touched,
We’ll see you next year, and we thank you so much!
