Support the Susan G. Komen 3-Day
On Friday, November 1st, through Sunday, November 3rd, hundreds of people will walk 60 miles in a courageous display of commitment in the fight to end breast cancer. Over the past 16 years and 170 events, Susan G. Komen 3-Day events have raised more than $848 million—which Komen has used to save lives and make huge strides in breast cancer research. For more information about the event, go to The3Day.org.
Once again The 3-Day® route passes right through Hall Park, offering you a great opportunity to show some community spirit while supporting an important cause. Information for spectators and the community is at The3Day.org/Spectator.
Every year, we hear from participants that the support they felt from the community was the best part of the event. It really makes a huge difference in their experience and we hope you can help them feel the love. Here are some ideas that might motivate our walkers as they take that next step:
- Decorate your shop windows or sidewalk with pink ribbons
- Hang banners or signs of support to encourage the walkers to keep going
- Hand out pink “goodies” to walkers along the route as they pass by
The majority of our 3-Day walkers will pass through HALL Park on Friday, November 1st between 7:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Opening Ceremony begins at The Star at 7:30 a.m. and it’s open to the public.
NOTE: While we encourage you to pass out treats to the walkers, we also want to keep your sidewalk spotless! To eliminate any issues with litter, please keep packaging to a minimum and provide a place for walkers to dispose of their trash.
We hope that every business in HALL Park can support the 2019 Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day. It’s a wonderful way to be a part of something huge and make this challenging event extra fun for walkers who are taking steps to end breast cancer forever.
