Local women and men walk 60-miles in the Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3-Day ®, October 7-9

United in purpose and bound by hope, Susan G. Komen Atlanta 3-Day® participants will walk 60 miles next month, October 7-9. The Komen 3-Day is a three-day, 60-mile walk for those who want to end breast cancer forever. These amazing men and women raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, all while educating tens of thousands of people about breast health with every step. Events like the 3-Day and Komen Race for the Cure® have helped Komen invest more than $2.8 billion to fulfill our promise to save lives and end breast cancer. Since 2005, the Atlanta 3-Day has raised more than $63 million in the fight to end breast cancer.
 
Throughout the weekend, local residents can help encourage and cheer on 3-Day participants as they
journey 60 miles in three days.
