Some favorite Instagrams from Michigan and Twin Cities 3-Day

Everywhere you look on the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®, there’s a photo op: from the sea of pink under the sunrise at Opening Ceremony, to the hilariously themed pit stops, to the jubilant crowds surrounding the last walker each day, there are many memories to capture. We’re excited to share some Instagram photos from our Komen 3-Day communities in Michigan and Twin Cities, and we encourage you to share your 3-Day memories with hashtag #The3Day and your local hashtag. Following along from home? We post Instagram photos from the route at @Komen3Day.

When you’re on the 3-Day event, we also invite you to play along with our Instagram photo challenge. Each night, we’ll feature three photos from our community that best sum up the prompts. Happy ‘Gramming!

Through the Eyes of Michigan 3-Dayers: Instagram

We love seeing our participants’ Susan G. Komen 3-Day experience through their own eyes. Enjoy some of our favorite photos that were posted to Instagram during the Michigan 3-Day. You can find these and many more under hashtags #MI3Day and #The3Day, and if you haven’t already shared your shots with these hashtags, it’s not too late (you can always go back to old posts and add hashtags as comments too)! CONGRATULATIONS on an amazing 60 mile journey, Michigan 3-Day walkers and crew!

Headed to the 3-Day? Don’t Leave Home Without Social Media!

When I started walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® a decade and a half ago, the possibilities for sharing my on-event experience with loved ones back home were limited to calls home on not-so-smart cell phones and maybe showing off some snapshots to whomever happened to be around when I (maybe) pulled the photos off a clunky digital camera onto my computer. Today though, there are so many wonderful ways that Komen 3-Day participants can stay connected to their fellow 3-Day® friends, as well as their supporters in all corners of the world. Social media makes it all possible, and here’s how!

Follow Us Everywhere! – Did you know that the 3-Day is active on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? We’ll be posting to all of these platforms, plus blogging lots of fascinating stories and important updates before, during and after each 3-Day event weekend. You’re likely to see different content on each site, so the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything is to follow the 3-Day everywhere!

Facebook Connections – When you complete Online Check-in for the 3-Day, you can sign up for Bank of America® 3-Day Connections™. This convenient service links your personal Facebook and/or Twitter accounts to an ID tag that you wear on your credential lanyard while you walk. When you (and your tag) cross sensors at certain points along the route, the Bank of America® 3-Day Connections™ system will automatically update your Facebook or Twitter status with a post. Signing up is free and easy.

Hashtags, hashtags, hashtags! – If you plan to post to social media on your own throughout the 3-Day event, be sure to add hashtags so that your posts can be grouped with other ones from the same event. At minimum, we suggest you use #The3Day and your location-specific hashtag.susan g. komen 3-Day breast cancer 60 miles walk blog hashtag social media

Instagram Photo Challenges – Each day of the 3-Day, we will hold a different themed photo challenge on Instagram, and we invite all of you 3-Day shutterbugs to join in. Post pictures that represent each day’s theme, and add the hashtag for that day (along with the other hashtags listed above, of course). At the end of each day, we’ll choose three of the themed photos to share on the 3-Day’s Instagram page.susan g. komen 3-Day breast cancer 60 miles walk blog hashtag social media instagram
