Participants in the 60-mile trek raise a minimum of $2,300 prior to the event and walk an average of 20 miles per day for three days in a row. Money raised for the walk supports ongoing research and community outreach programs to help eradicate breast cancer.

Volunteers will provide pit-stop and medical support to walkers, help set up campsites at night and assist with opening and closing ceremonies. If you would like to help out, head over to www.the3day.org/volunteer.
