Your Susan G. Komen 3‑Day® journey will begin with an inspiring, emotional Opening Ceremony at Southdale Mall in Edina. You’ll walk through the beautiful parks and shaded neighborhoods of the Twin Cities, and spend two fun-filled nights at our Komen 3‑Day camp, bonding with your fellow walkers. It all culminates in a celebratory Closing Ceremony at Harriet Island in St. Paul.
To get a glimpse into the journey, here is a look at the 2015 Twin Cities 3‑Day route map. More details about the route will be revealed as we confirm them.

I am excited to be the primary support coach for the Twin Cities walkers again this year! I have raised more than $5,000 for the 3‑Day, walking two times and serving as a crew member twice. I am looking forward to another great year as your coach, getting to know you or reconnecting with you this season. Whether this is your first walk or you are a seasoned veteran, I am here to answer your questions and help with your fundraising. I look forward to working with you and meeting you at the walk in August. This is my sixth year as a coach and I love my job! Please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time with questions that you may have. I am always happy to be of assistance.
I will be out and about in the Twin Cities working with our amazing participants. I have raised more than $4,800 for the 3‑Day, walking twice. I always look forward to bringing both new and veteran walkers together through training workshops, meet-ups and other fun local activities that will help prepare you for a successful 3‑Day experience. Like many of you, my own family has been personally touched by breast cancer. Losing a grandmother and then watching my own mom survive has truly inspired me. My mom and I walked our first 3‑Day in Chicago in 2005 as a way to put closure to what she and our family went through during her illness. I was overwhelmed by the sense of community and compassion on the event and was hooked! Every mile along our route is filled with stories, laughter, hope and inspiration. Thank you for your time and commitment to help end breast cancer forever. Welcome to our pink 3‑Day family!
I will be supporting the crew members and volunteers for the Twin Cities 3‑Day. I walked in the 3‑Day in 2002 and raised more than $2,700. After 60 long miles and a few blisters, I can truly say it was an unforgettable journey that I will cherish forever. It was after that experience that I knew I had to be involved in this event any way I could. For the past 11 years, I have been supporting our Crew community and it has been a true honor. On the 3‑Day you will be rewarded with a lifetime’s worth of incredible memories. I want to personally thank you for your commitment. With your help, the 3‑Day will change lives, and have a lasting, positive impact on millions of people.
