By Girl Power News , in News , at December 2, 2022

More than 5,000 participants took part in the 2022 Susan G. Komen 3-Day event series raising $14 million during the events held in Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, and San Diego. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is the longest distance one can go in the fight against breast cancer. Participants each raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, all while educating tens of thousands of people about breast health.

For 2023, the Susan G. Komen 3-Day is expanding the 3-Day event series, adding Denver, Colorado to the event roster. The 2023 3-Day series will include five events: New England (August 18–20), Denver (August 25-27), Chicago (September 8–10), Dallas-Ft. Worth (October 27–29), and San Diego (November 17–19). Registration for the 2023 event series is now open, and can be found at The3Day.org.

Susan G. Komen raised $14 million during the 2022 3-Day event series and announced a new location for 2023.

“As we wrap up a successful 2022 Komen 3-Day season, we are excited to announce we are not only returning to all four cities but are also adding Denver to our event series for 2023,” said Paula Schneider, Komen’s president and CEO. “Adding event locations allows more people to get involved in our 3-Day community and join the fight against breast cancer. None of this would be possible without our amazing 3-Day participants, each of who is dedicated to this cause. Every step taken during a 3-Day event is a step closer to ending breast cancer forever. We invite you to come join our ‘pink bubble’ and register for a 2023 event today.”

The funds raised by the Komen 3-Day support Susan G. Komen’s vision of a world without breast cancer, contributing to the organizations more than $1.1 billion investment in breakthrough research and more than $2.3 billion for real-time support for those facing breast cancer today, through screening, diagnostics, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is a 60-mile walk for people committed to going the distance to end breast cancer. Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, educating their communities about breast health and raising funds to help support breast cancer research, community health, patient care and advocacy. It’s a big commitment, but it’s totally worth it. Since 2003, the Komen 3-Day has raised more than $889 million. The net proceeds raised by the Susan G. Komen 3-Day help Komen save lives and end breast cancer through breakthrough research and support to people facing breast cancer now by providing access to screening, treatment assistance, patient navigation and education.

Sponsored by Bank of America, the 2023 3-Day Series includes five events in New England (August 18–20), Denver (August 25-27), Chicago (September 8–10), Dallas-Ft. Worth (October 27–29), and San Diego (November 17–19).
