All-Crew Kick-Off

All crew members must join us for an exciting and inspirational All-Crew Kick-Off on Thursday, September 14 at Marymoor Park in Redmond.

The All-Crew Kick-Off is your chance to reunite with crew friends from past events and meet the newest members of our crew community. We’ll have games, music and other activities to build camaraderie and the Komen 3-Day spirit. You can also learn how to set up event tents and canopies, use a walkie-talkie and maybe even drive a big truck. You will receive your crew t-shirts and get the chance to have your photo taken with your team. Attendance at the All-Crew Kick-Off is required for all crew members.

2:30 p.m. – Driving and Navigation (for all crew members assigned as drivers or navigators)
3:00 – 3:45 p.m. – All-Crew Huddle
3:45 – 4:45 p.m. – Crew Team Meetings

Select crew teams will need to arrive earlier on Thursday to begin their crew responsibilities or help with set-up and check-in for the All-Crew Kick-Off. Please contact your Crew Captain to confirm your scheduled arrival time before finalizing your travel plans. There will be no shuttles on Thursday to or from the All-Crew Kick-Off to the host hotel. If you are in need of a ride, please contact your fellow crew members.
