Participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® on a team multiplies the fun, the laughter and the tears that you share along the way, and multiplies your fundraising power.
The support of teammates makes training and fundraising more enjoyable (and successful) as it is easier to stay motivated. If your team becomes one of our top teams, your fundraising and recruitment efforts will be recognized on The3Day.org and on the event.
The resources on this page can help you build a team and lead it to fundraising and training success.
How to Form or Join a Team
You can join a team with the “Change Team Membership” link on your Participant Center home page (on the right-hand side). To form a new team, please submit the Team Request Form.
Find a Team to Join
The 3-Day Friend Finder helps participants like you find teams in your area that are open to accepting new members. Follow this link to search the 3-Day Friend Finder for a 3-Day® team to join. Please contact the team captain directly to learn more about their team.
You can also visit the message boards or attend a training walk to find a team. If you can’t find any teams in your area, contact your coach to find a team to join or learn how to form your own.
Grow Your Team and Earn a Slumber Party
If you recruit two first-time walkers by May 31 to join you on the 3-Day, we’ll arrange for you to have a slumber party together on the event, complete with a large tent that sleeps up to 4, with air mattresses, pillows and phone chargers. Go to The3Day.org/Refer to get your personal recruitment link and ID, which you’ll need to start recruiting those first-time walkers to register. (Note: This offer is not valid for the Philadelphia 3-Day, since there will be no tent camping on that event.)
“LOVED the slumber party tents!!!! It was my first 3-Day walk and I was so happy to be sleeping in a slumber party tent.”
“I had a slumber party tent and the new walker on my team was very impressed. She is older and being able to sleep on a high air mattress and in a large tent improved her experience.”
“I LOVED the slumber party tent experience. It was so awesome to be able to stand up and move around the tent.”
