Thursday, August 20
All crew members must join us for an exciting and inspirational All-Crew Kick-Off on Thursday, August 20 at Southdale Mall in Edina.
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.
The All-Crew Kick-Off will last approximately 2 hours, from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. 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. Parking will be available.
The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® has a group room block at local hotels for Komen 3-Day participants*, which will include shuttle transportation from the hotel to the 3-Day® event. All hotel reservations must be booked by August 6 through the link below.
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 afternoon. You will need to pick up a shuttle pass from the Sunday Shuttle Tent at camp on Friday night, 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 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 and Young Women Walking only.
