I will be out in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, working with our amazing participants to help bring even more walkers to the Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day this year. I’m a native Dallas-area Texan and have been a “3-Day addict” since 2005. Watching my best friend fight and beat breast cancer inspires me to share what Susan G. Komen® has achieved in the fight against this disease. I have raised more than $17,000 for the 3-Day, walking five times (this year will be my sixth) and serving as a crew member six times. Contact me if you would like me to host a 3-Day information gathering in your area. I promise, when you commit to participate in the 3-Day, you'll experience the "3-Day bubble" and make memories that will last a lifetime.

I'll be the primary support coach for Michigan 3-Day participants this year! I invite you to email or call me with your questions, concerns or if you just want to share a great story. Too many people in my life have been touched or taken by breast cancer. That's why I took my first 3-Day journey back in 2006. Since then, I've helped participants just like you on a dozen 3-Day events, offering fundraising tips, training tools and so much more, all to support their commitment in the fight to end breast cancer!

I will be out in the Metro Detroit area, working with our amazing participants to help bring even more walkers to the Michigan 3-Day this year. In 2015, I decided to walk the Michigan 3-Day, as it's always been on my “bucket list.” I loved the entire journey, especially the sense of community and how the experience made me feel! My participant involvement with the 3-Day resonated with me and I’m thrilled to be a member of the Michigan 3-Day team. Those who choose to participate will surely feel a sense of accomplishment, purpose, and community in this journey. Please join us this year and be part of something amazing.

I will be out in the local area, working with our amazing participants to help bring even more walkers to the Philadelphia 3-Day this year. When I first became a part of this event in 2007, my favorite quote was "Too Inspired To Be Tired," and that is still how I feel today even after walking 16 events and crewing 10. Each event brought more inspiration, drive, and determination to finding a cure and ending the battle with breast cancer. I have lost too many friends to this disease, and I cannot lose anymore. Together we will take a stand and make a difference one step and one dollar at a time. I am here to help in anyway I can. We are in this together, the support that exists as part of the 3-Day community is unlike any other kind of community support that I have ever been a part of, and I cannot wait to share that with all of you.

I will be out in the San Diego area, bringing more walkers to the San Diego 3-Day. I have raised more than $10,000 for the 3-Day, walking four times. My history with the 3-Day dates back to 2002. I was so inspired by my mother-in-law’s courage and strength as she fought her brave battle against breast cancer that I signed up to walk in her honor. I was expecting it to be challenging to fundraise. I was expecting it to be challenging to walk so far. What I wasn’t expecting were the bold and rewarding feelings of camaraderie and accomplishment. I was not prepared for the undeniable sense of power created by a community with a common purpose. Now, with four 3-Days under my fanny pack, I’m looking forward to supporting you along your own 3-Day journey!

I will be supporting the crew members and volunteers for the San Diego 3-Day. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I walked in the 3-Day in 2002 and raised more than $2,700. After 60 long miles and a few blisters, I can truly say it was an unforgettable journey that I will cherish forever. It was after that experience that I knew I had to be involved in this event any way I could. For the past 14 years, I have been supporting our crew community and it has been a true honor. On the 3-Day you will be rewarded with a lifetime’s worth of incredible memories. I want to personally thank you for your commitment. With your help, the 3-Day will change lives, and have a lasting, positive impact on millions of people.

I will be out in the Seattle area, working with our amazing participants to help bring even more walkers to the Seattle 3-Day this year. I have lived in Seattle for over 14 years and was initially brought to our fair city through my work with the 3-Day. I worked as a walker coach for the Michigan event back in 2004 and walked in my first 3-Day that fall in San Diego. With the addition of Seattle to the 2005 3-Day markets, I relocated at the end of 2004 and began recruiting participants as a Field Coordinator. I moved into the Event Production role during the 2006 season and continued in that role for the next 5 seasons. I have been a part of over 15 3-Day events and it never ceases to inspire and amaze me. As the daughter and niece of two incredible survivors, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I am so excited to return to the Seattle 3-Day community and can't wait to meet all of you. I am here to guide and support you every step of the way!

I will be out in the Twin Cities area, working with our amazing participants to help bring new walkers and more awareness to the Twin Cities 3-Day this year. I have raised more than $5,900 for the 3-Day, walking twice. Like many of you, my own family has been personally touched by breast cancer. Losing a grandmother and then watching my own mom survive has truly inspired me. My mom and I walked our first 3-Day in Chicago in 2005 as a way to put closure to what she and our family went through during her illness. I was overwhelmed by the sense of community and compassion on the event and was hooked! Every mile along our route is filled with stories, laughter, hope and inspiration. Thank you for your time and commitment to help end breast cancer forever. Welcome to our 3-Day family!
