Michigan 3‑Day August 2-4, 2019

3 Days. 60 Miles. Not as hard as Breast Cancer.

Your Susan G. Komen 3‑Day® starts the moment you make the commitment. Your 3‑Day coaches will support you as you train and fundraise. Our amazing community of walkers, crew, and volunteers will welcome you as you get ready to spend three magical days together on a journey to end breast cancer forever.

The first day begins with an emotional Opening Ceremony at the Sheraton Detroit Novi where the adrenaline and anticipation of taking on 60 miles is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. The feelings of pride and strength you’ll realize while walking 60 miles through towns like Plymouth and Dearborn are only matched by the spirit and gratitude of the communities you encounter and those you are helping along the way. Plymouth has even been known to turn their fountain pink for us!

You’ll spend two nights at the Sheraton Detroit Novi or a nearby hotel, in the embrace of the dedicated 3-Day community, sharing meals, stories and making new friends. It all culminates in a Closing Ceremony at Ford World Headquarters celebrating everything you accomplished, remembering those we have lost, and honoring those who are in the fight of their lives.

The Susan G. Komen 3‑Day is an experience you’ll never forget. It’s why our walkers come back year after year to recommit their time and energy to put an end to breast cancer once and for all. Learn more. Commit now.


We are here to answer your questions, celebrate your successes and help you reach your fundraising and training goals.

Why I walk

For me this is all about the future. It's all about finding a cure for breast cancer and hoping that none of these daughters, none of my daughters' friends ever go through experiencing breast cancer. And having them walk with me is just so supportive and so special to have them with me step by step through the entire journey.

Walkers leaving from Opening Ceremony in hotel

This year, the Michigan 3‑Day will take place at the Sheraton Detroit Novi, including meals and main street.

You’ll get the same ceremony, community and camaraderie as usual on the 3‑Day, or as our veterans call it, “The 3‑Day Pink Bubble,” with all the comforts of a hotel room. Refuel and recharge for the journey ahead with meals, massage chairs, a hot shower and a comfy bed. You will be provided two nights at the host or nearby hotel and rooms will be assigned to double (or quadruple, if you choose) occupancy. This comes at no additional cost to you or the 3‑Day.
