2021 3-Day Update

So much has changed over the last 12 months. You’ve sacrificed, pivoted and adapted at every turn. But among the new changes and challenges, some things have remained the same: your commitment to show up for this community and to support Susan G. Komen’s mission to save lives from breast cancer. Your dedication to come together and support the breast cancer community is unwavering. In that spirit, we want to update you about our plans for the 2021 3-Day Series.

Due to the current and projected state of the COVID-19 pandemic and its continued risk to our community, we are making a change to this year’s Susan G. Komen 3-Day Series. We know that many in our community are eager to gather again in person, and our participants’ safety and well-being, many of whom have compromised immune systems, must be our first concern.

With the balance between the desire to gather as a community and safety and well-being in mind, we are offering two options for participating in the 3-Day this year:

  • For those who want to participate together, in-person, we will be hosting the all-outdoor San Diego 3-Day from November 19-21, 2021.
  • For those who prefer to participate in smaller groups, by yourself, or closer to home, we’re excited to provide a new option — 3-Day Nation.

We will not be hosting our indoor, hotel-based events in New England, Chicago, and Dallas/Fort Worth. Instead, registrants for these events will be given the option to transfer to the San Diego 3-Day or 3-Day Nation.

As Paula stated, we are grateful to be able to come together in-person in San Diego and equally as excited to offer 3-Day Nation in October to unite the 3-Day community in ways you’ve never experienced before. Both of these opportunities will allow you to continue to raise critical funds for breast cancer research and services for those who need it today.

The all new 3-Day Nation experience will bring the 3-Day to you, at home, in your communities among your tribe. You don’t need to travel or take time away from loved ones, and you can walk your miles all at your own pace. And the fundraising minimum is just $1,000, so you can invite more people to join you – friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. This is an amazing opportunity, in your neighborhood and community, to bring even more people into the 3-Day Pink Bubble and support our vision to end breast cancer forever.

In mid-May, we will share more details about this new experience, but here’s what we know so far. 3-Day Nation will take place during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. We’ll provide an event kit to support and celebrate your journey and your commitment so that you can create your own 3-Day the way you want to experience it. We’ll be sure to include your favorite elements of the Pink Bubble and we will have some innovative ways to engage beyond your basic Zoom. We’ll make sure you're connected to the community and have the opportunity to join others in person. The experience will provide you with all of the impact and inspiration you expect from the traditional 3-Day. Our promise to you? You will be embraced, celebrated, and cared for the “3-Day way.”

Registration is still open to walk in the 2021 San Diego 3-Day. And registration for 3-Day Nation will open on June 15, 2021. Thank you for your continued commitment and perseverance over the last year as we have come together as a community to truly represent our rally cry “We will never give up!”

We hope you participate in 3-Day Nation, in San Diego or both!

We see you. We see your commitment. You know that cancer treatments, screenings, and diagnoses wait for no one. People like you have continued to show up and stand up to fight breast cancer. Now is the time to finish what we started.

So, let’s go the distance. Let’s raise more funds, save more lives, and honor our survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer. Let’s bridge this past year with the hope, the commitment, and the will of our community.

Thank you for your understanding and for supporting those in the breast cancer community who need your help the most.


Your Susan G. Komen 3-Day Team
