Thursday, October 13
All crew members must join us for an exciting and inspirational All-Crew Kick-Off on Thursday, October 13 at Willow Grove Park Mall.
The All-Crew Kick-Off is your chance to reunite with crew friends from past events and meet the newest members of our crew community. We’ll have games, music and other activities to build camaraderie and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® spirit. You can also learn how to set up event tents and canopies, use a walkie-talkie and maybe even drive a big truck. You will receive your crew t-shirts and get the chance to have your photo taken with your team. Attendance at the All-Crew Kick-Off is required for all crew members.

Select crew teams will need to arrive earlier on Thursday to begin their crew responsibilities or help with set-up and check-in for the All-Crew Kick-Off. Please contact your Crew Captain to confirm your scheduled arrival time before finalizing your travel plans. Please note that there will be no shuttles on Thursday from the All-Crew Kick-Off to the host hotel. If you are in need of a ride, please contact your fellow crew members.
The Komen 3-Day has a group room block at local hotels for 3-Day® participants*, which will include shuttle transportation from the hotel to the 3-Day event. All hotel reservations must be booked by September 26 through the link below.
If you are making a reservation for Thursday and Sunday night only (or any other stays that are not consecutive nights), you will need to make two separate reservations. If you have difficulty making a reservation through the link above, please contact email@example.com. All other 3-Day questions should be directed to your 3-Day coach.
Thursday night hotel reservations include shuttle service to the Opening Ceremony on Friday morning. Friday and Saturday night hotel reservations include shuttle service to camp on Saturday and Sunday morning. Sunday night hotel reservations include shuttle service from the Closing Ceremony to the hotel on Sunday evening. You will need to pick up a shuttle pass from the Sunday Shuttle Tent at camp on Friday night, 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
An important note about shuttle service: If you stay at another hotel or your room is not booked through the link above, you will not receive shuttle service and are not guaranteed weekend parking at the hotel. Shuttle service from the Closing Ceremony to the host hotels will be available for a $20 charge, for those who do not have a Sunday night host hotel reservation. Personal vehicles are not allowed at any 3-Day site.
*All crew members are required to stay at the 3-Day camp on Friday and Saturday night, so Friday and Saturday night hotel reservations are available for walkers only.
Long-term parking will be available at 2620 W Moreland Road, Willow Grove, PA 19090 for a $30 fee (cash or credit). Long-term parking is limited, and is on a first-come/first-served basis.
While reasonable efforts are made to provide security for long-term parking, the participant agrees and acknowledges that any and all loss associated with such parking shall be at his/her own risk and ultimately his/her own full responsibility.

If you are registered as a 20-mile walker, you’ll notice that much of this information, particularly details about Friday and Saturday of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® event, will not apply to you. However, we encourage you to read it over anyway to give you a full picture of the Komen 3-Day experience.
If you have not completed online check-in or do not have your credential, you must go to our Command Center (a big pink trailer) at The Navy Yard at 7:00 a.m. to complete check-in. If you have any problems finding us, please call the on-event hotline (800) 416-3364. Once all 20-mile walkers are done checking-in, we will shuttle you to camp to begin the day’s route. This shuttle bus is for 20-mile walkers only.
If you have printed your credential at home, you can either park in Spectator Parking at The Navy Yard and go to our Command Center (a big pink trailer) by 7:15 a.m., or be dropped off at the 3-Day camp at the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 8:00 a.m. Breakfast will be available at camp from 6:00 a.m. - 8:15 a.m. All walkers must be on the route by 8:30 a.m. There is no parking available at the 3-Day camp at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Once you arrive at camp, check in at the pink information tent near the arch.
If you are staying at a host hotel under the 3-Day rate, you can take the 3-Day shuttle to camp at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in the morning and back to the hotel on Sunday after the Closing Ceremony. If you are not staying at a 3-Day host hotel, you can either park in Spectator Parking at The Navy Yard, or get dropped off at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and picked up at The Navy Yard.
Your friends, family and supporters should arrive at the Closing Ceremony site at least one hour early to secure a space by the stage that will give them the best view of the program. Please let your supporters know to allow extra time for travel and parking.
All walkers and crew members are encouraged to remain in the Participant Finish Area where you will receive your victory shirt, cheer on fellow walkers and crew members and reflect on your experience together before the dramatic victory walk into the Closing Ceremony.
Parking: Designated parking for spectators will be available at The Navy Yard.
