The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a 60-mile walk over the course of three days in San Diego, California. This walk raises money to continue the fight to find a cure for breast cancer. I am so excited to be part of the Susan G. Komen Youth Corp volunteers this year. Since my mom's first walk in 2016, I have wanted to participate in helping find a cure for breast cancer. Recently, my grandma (Mimi) and my Aunt (Aunt Val) were diagnosed with breast cancer. I can't imagine losing them to this disease and I want to do what I can to help find a cure for them and for everyone else who is fighting this disease.
During the 3-day walk, I will be volunteering with other 10-16 year olds to support the walkers during the event. I will get to be part of the cheer squad, clean-up crew, mobile crew, and be tasked with many other jobs throughout the event. However, before the walk begins, I need to raise $500. Will you please consider contributing to this cause? All money raised will support the research efforts and will support the patients currently fighting the disease.
