2014 Susan G. Kormen 3-day raises $2.4 million

MICHIGAN — Recently the state marked the end of a 60-mile journey and the beginning of life-long memories and friendships created as the Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day came to a close. Sixty miles of perseverance and emotions culminated as hundreds of breast cancer walkers crossed the finish line in an effort to end breast cancer forever.

Together, these spirited participants raised $2.4 million for breast cancer research and community outreach programs.

“Walking 60 miles is no easy feat, but we walk because we can and because it matters,” said Sheri Prentiss, national spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. “We are humbled by the strength of these Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day participants and so thankful for their continued support as we fight to end this disease.”

The Komen 3-Day is more than just walking 60 miles in one weekend; it’s a life-changing experience participants embark on months before when they begin training and fundraising in their communities. Funds raised by the 3-Day have helped lead to new technologies like Lymphoseek®, a new imaging agent that more accurately identifies cancer-containing lymph nodes.
