Susan G. Komen® has announced the return of its annual Susan G. Komen 3-Day® Series in four major cities.

The event brings together thousands of dedicated women and men, who take on the challenge to raise funds and walk 60 miles to support Komen's mission to save lives by meeting the most critical needs of our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer. Participants of the 3-Day include breast cancer survivors, co-survivors, individuals living with metastatic breast cancer, friends, family and other supporters.

This year, the 3-Day events will be held in Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and San Diego.

The schedule is:
New England (Boston) – August 26-28, 2022
ChicagoSeptember 16-18, 2022
Dallas/Fort WorthNovember 4-6, 2022
San DiegoNovember 18-20, 2022

"We're thrilled to be back in four cities with this life-changing series after having to postpone due to the pandemic," said Paula Schneider, President and CEO of Susan G. Komen. "Last year, we were able to safely host one 3-Day event in San Diego, and we are excited to announce that we are back with an entire series in four major cities."

Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, educating tens of thousands of people about breast health and raising funds to help support breast cancer research, patient care and community outreach programs.

"This event annually brings people who unite together for one cause – to see a world without breast cancer," said Schneider. "There are so many individuals that continued to train and fundraise for the past two years waiting for this moment where we can finally come together."

"The three-day journey is the climax of a year-long commitment to train and raise critical funds that are vital to helping us to find new discoveries for breast cancer, provide much-needed support to individuals facing breast cancer, make long-lasting policy changes and unify our breast cancer community," said Schneider.

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day experience will begin with an inspiring Opening Ceremony, two impactful nights together as a community, culminating on the final day after finishing 60 miles of walking with a celebratory Closing Ceremony.

The event brings together supporters from all walks of life each year to register, commit and participate in a weekend full of honoring the memories of friends and family as well as lifting up breast cancer survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer in the 3-Day community.

With more than 17,769,720 miles walked and $875 million raised since its inception, the Susan G. Komen 3-Day continues to inspire and strengthen the breast cancer community with its commitment to funding, research and education for survivors and co-survivors.

Walkers converge on each city with personal stories of triumph and survival with the goal of accomplishing the 60-mile challenge year after year.
