New Walkers Start Here

BE BOLD. BE FEARLESS. BE MORE THAN PINK.

A breast cancer diagnosis—whether it’s your own or someone you love—can leave you feeling helpless. Imagine if there were a way to fight back—to do something that can make an impact. There is. It’s called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®.

It’s a three-day, 60-mile walk that’s making a real difference in the fight against breast cancer. In 2016, Susan G. Komen® announced a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. That’s why we walk, and why we raise money—to make that goal a reality.

Pink is more than just a color; it represents the impact that each person is making in the fight against breast cancer. This impact makes you More Than Pink. Over the past 14 years and 156 events, the money we’ve raised has been used to save lives, support community programs, and make huge strides in breast cancer research.

The Komen 3-Day has also inspired the thousands of women and men who left the event transformed. You’ll find strength, you’ll find purpose and you’ll know that you are More Than Pink.

A New Way to Join the 3-Day® Family:

Give us a day and we'll give you a purpose. Be More Than Pink® for one day and 20 miles, and join the movement to end breast cancer.

1 Day

YOU CAN DO THIS

From the minute you register, an experienced 3-Day walker will be your coach and mentor for your entire journey. Through fundraising and training, you’ll meet other walkers, you may form a team and you’ll gather together in triumph for three incredible days.

THE FACTS:

  • It’s a 60-mile walk over the course of three days.
  • The route is fully supported by an experienced crew who will keep you safe and comfortable (and cheer you on like a rock star!).
  • For two nights, you’ll camp together in the 3-Day community.
  • You’ll raise $2,300 to help end breast cancer. It’s a big commitment, but to end breast cancer, we have to act boldly. It’s time to step up and do the most you can do—for this mission, for those you love and for yourself.

“I walk because the day a family member receives a cancer diagnosis, your whole world changes. You immediately think of the years you may lose with them and of the heavy burdens they now must bear. I dream of a future in which no mother, father, sister, brother, or other loved one has to battle cancer. We’re all here today, united in the fight against cancer. We support the fighters, admire the survivors, honor the angels, and never EVER give up hope.”

—Susan, Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day Walker


YOU ARE BOLD. YOU ARE FEARLESS. YOU ARE MORE THAN PINK.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® became what it is because of you. You built this community from the ground up into an unstoppable force. You declared that you could not sit by while breast cancer continues to threaten the lives of those we love.

The money you’ve raised, and the lives you’ve impacted, make you More Than Pink.

So let’s continue the battle cry together: We will never give up. We keep walking and we keep raising money to ensure that no other lives are taken by this disease.

TOOLS FOR RETURNING PARTICIPANTS:

  • Our shareable infographics will educate your donors, teammates, family and friends about how Komen 3-Day funds transform into lifesaving work.
  • Expand your team and spread the 3-Day® spirit with our 3-Day Recruitment Kit.
  • Experienced 3-Day walkers can brush up their fundraising strategies with these suggestions from two longtime fundraisers and 3-Day coaches.
  • Don’t forget about your coach! You may be an experienced 3-Day walker, but they are, too! Our coaches have a combined 140 events and more than $225,000 in fundraising under their belts. Reach out for extra support, new ideas, or training advice.

“My best friend from childhood began walking the 3-Day with me in 2012. Only 7 months later, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, one that had no cure just 20 years ago. But today, she is cancer-free and so thankful for Susan G. Komen®, because money from these events supported the research that saved her life.”

—Emily, Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day Walker

THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO SUPPORT THE FIGHT TO END BREAST CANCER

A Susan G. Komen 3-Day® walker’s journey is long and challenging, and they need you to help them through it.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

When the Komen 3-Day comes to town, the whole community rallies around it. Cheering stations and squads of all sizes energize and inspire the walkers, and spread the spirit of the 3-Day®. It’s three incredible days as part of a community dedicated to doing good. Don’t miss it!

THE FACTS:

  • Serve as the walkers’ lifeline and the backbone of the event as a 3-Day crew member.
  • Spend a few hours or a day bringing the Opening or Closing Ceremonies to life as a volunteer.
  • Be the person who inspires our walkers to take one more step on the route in one of our Mobile Cheering Squads (what we affectionately call “walker stalkers”).

  • Register today to join us as a walker.

“It is truly the journey that brings you to the awareness of why each of us is here. We have our own personal reasons for wanting to travel this path…but each of us, in our hearts, shares a passion for doing something, somehow, to make a difference, to change a life, to find a cure. Each of us, as we walk these miles, travels not only the journey of the road, but also the journey of our hearts. Each of us becomes one of a family that is united across all boundaries, to do what we can to truly make a difference, and we know that each step does make a difference.”
