Your participant has participated in two emotional celebrations, a challenging 60-mile journey and a life-changing experience in just three days. Now, it’s time to go back home. Here are some tips on how to help your walker make a smooth transition back to their daily routine.
Have a welcome home meal prepared and make it an evening of rest and relaxation.
Encourage your participant to share the 3-Day experience.
If you can’t attend the Closing Ceremony, be sure to ask how much money was raised!
Unpack, clean and put away gear.
Share the newspaper articles or news footage that you’ve collected over the weekend.
The following day, give your participant a massage or schedule a day of pampering at a spa.
In the days to come, help your participant write thank you notes.
Print pictures and assemble a scrapbook.
Help your participant plan a reunion party to keep in touch with other walkers.
Get ready to do it all over again! Maybe you’ll be joining the 3-Day next year!
