The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is proud to announce its return to Denver, Colo., for the first time since 2010, offering new opportunities for individuals who want to make a big impact in the fight against breast cancer. The Denver event, scheduled for August 25-27, 2023, includes three ways to participate – participants can walk 20 miles in one day, 40 miles over two days or 60 miles over three days. This flexible format creates options for anyone who wants to join the movement in Denver this year and walk the mileage of their choice.
“The 3-Day is tough and many who want to be part of this significant opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by breast cancer simply cannot walk 60 miles,” said Paula Schneider, President and CEO of Komen and a breast cancer survivor. “Offering three ways to participate will make an endurance event possible for more participants, more supporters of Komen’s mission to end breast cancer and more passionate individuals who want to make a big impact.”
With the introduction of three distance options, the Susan G. Komen 3-Day experience is now more inclusive than ever. Participants choosing to walk 20 miles in one day must raise a minimum of $750, 40 miles in two days must raise a minimum of $1,800, or 60 miles over three days must raise a minimum of $2,300. Money raised supports Komen’s Patient Care Center, which provides direct support to anyone facing breast cancer now, and life-saving research that will bring us closer to the cures for this disease.
Participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day is more than just a walk; it’s a journey of hope, remembrance and celebration. It is also empowering, both mentally and physically, and participants gain a sense of community and support with each step taken during the 3-Day.
