Susan G. Komen 3-day kicks off today
Event helps in the fight against breast cancer
NOVI, Mich. – Hundreds of men and women are set to walk 60 miles in three days to help in the fight against breast cancer.
The Susan G. Komen 3-day walk kicks off early Friday morning.
Participants are gathering at the Suburban Collection Showplace to start the event.
Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, educating tens of thousands of people about breast health with every step. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by Komen 3-Day help support national research and large public health outreach programs. The remaining 25 percent supports local community and Affiliate outreach programs.
On Sunday, you can cheer the group on at the Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn.
