Jackie Brainerd’s mother had only been diagnosed with breast cancer for 6 months when Jackie heard a radio announcement for the 3-Day in 2006. Jackie recruited her sister and together they created the team. The team started with 12 members and grew to 100+ members over the years.
2018 will be our 13th year to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day. Fundraising begins early in the year with several events. A few of these events are the annual BBQ Cook-off, Golf Scramble, Texas Motor Speedway Concessions with a variety of other smaller fundraisers.
Training begins in late May most weekends rain or shine. We strongly encourage everyone to walk their own pace and no one is left behind. We are a group of women and men who are committed to walking until we find a cure!
We are a diverse group of all ages (16 to 70+) who have become so close, we are a family. While the majority of the team is from the DFW area, we have many members from around the country join us.
Our Sole Mission... to End Cancer!
