We Walk Because We Must


3-Day Nation is a community without boundaries. Strangers who connect and become family through a fierce and uncompromising commitment to end breast cancer. This experience is coming to you during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2-17, 2021.

3 reasons to get excited about 3-Day Nation:

A New 3-Day Experience

One that is accessible to more people, with new ways to participate in local groups or teams, or as a solo walker. You’ll never walk alone. You can connect to the larger 3-Day community through live and virtual events, challenges and channels. Whether you’re walking on your own or at a Pink Bubble Pop-Up, we will all walk the last 10 miles of our 3-Day Nation journey together, at the same time, in cities all across the Nation.


We’re coming together across zip codes and time zones, from backyards to big cities. We’ll walk together to raise more funds, save more lives, honor our survivors and celebrate your accomplishments coast to coast.


You decide how to walk your 60 miles. Spread it across all three weekends or walk it all in three days. It can be as challenging or flexible as you want—dial it up or down, you’re in the driver’s seat. Make the 3-Day yours!

3-Day Nation By The Numbers


Engage with the 3-Day family over three weekends in October. We’ll have live virtual events, meetup walks and lots of other ways to show your pink pride and connect in meaningful ways. Leading up to October, we’ll have fundraising and mileage challenges, coordinated training walks, shared stories and other programming to unify us.


Commit to walking 60 miles over the course of two weeks at your own pace! Starting on October 2, walk 50 of those miles on your own or with friends, family or team members as you engage with 3-Day Nation in pink-bubble-moments. Then on Sunday, October 17, join all of 3-Day Nation for a shared 10-mile walk. It’s going to be epic!

Walkers raising $1,000 will earn a 3-Day Nation Pink Bubble Bundle filled with an event t-shirt, 3-Day Nation pin, 3-Day Nation medal from Bank of America, and many more surprises.

National Campout & Honor Ceremony

On Saturday, walk if you like, then gather with your donors, team, friends and family. Or take a moment by yourself to join us for a moving Honor Ceremony on Saturday evening, sharing memories of those we’ve lost and paying tribute to those who inspire us each and every day. That night, join the National Campout—pop up a tent in your backyard, on your patio or in your living room! Don’t forget the smores and campfire stories. 

Sunday, October 17
Nationwide Walk & Closing Ceremony

We all connect and converge for one final day. We will walk the last 10 miles together, at the same time across the Nation. The walk culminates in a 3-Day Nation Closing Ceremony as we recognize your strength, resilience and commitment to end breast cancer. Get ready for your finish-line moment as we come together, nationwide, to bring the last walker home.
