Last Year For Komen 3
It began in 2003 as the Breast Cancer 3-Day, and over the past 16 years, it has grown to become one of the most recognizable breast cancer awareness fundraisers in Philadelphia.
Each October, participants walking for themselves, or loved ones who have had breast cancer, take to the streets to do a three-day, 60-mile walk for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation festooned all in pink, from customized tutus, to wigs, Mardi Gras beads and even shoes.
You see them as you drive to work, or take the kids to school. The car honking and cheering goes on all day, from Erdenheim, through Chestnut Hill, beginning and ending in Center City.
This years walk is from Oct. 18-20.
Since its inception, the walk for solidarity and awareness has raised more than $848 million nationwide for breast cancer research and this year will mark its final journey through Philadelphia. The 3-Day will move on to other cities nationwide next year, but while it has been a longtime tradition here, the Susan G. Komen organization will continue its two largest fundraisers, the Pink Tie Ball this month on Oct. 12, and the Komen Philadelphia More Than Pink Walk, formerly known as Race for the Cure, on Mothers Day weekend.
The 3-Day walk will be celebrating its last year here in Philadelphia, why is that?

Help Make Breast Cancer A Thing Of The Past
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer: ABC7NY asks you to join us, and walk!
The American Cancer Society believes that ALL people deserve a fair and just opportunity to live a longer, healthier life free from breast cancer. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer celebrates survivors and thrivers, and raises funds for lifesaving breast cancer research, advocacy, programs, and services.
Thanks in large part to decades of work and the dollars you help the American Cancer Society raise, a breast cancer diagnosis does not come without hope, and the breast cancer journey is not one that has to be traveled alone. The American Cancer Society couldnt do all it does work to save lives, provide free lodging, answer your calls 24 hours a day,/7 days a week/365 days a year, and fund groundbreaking research, without the support of the many sponsors who have joined with us on this mission to end breast cancer.
Cancer is a disease that affects everyone, but it doesnt affect everyone equally. Factors like racism, discrimination, poverty, lack of access to healthy and affordable food, and geographical location all impact a persons ability to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer.
We cant end breast cancer alone. We cant end breast cancer with just hope. We cant end breast cancer just by walking. We need you to help end breast cancer by taking action!
