Susan G. Komen 3 Day kicks off

60-mile walk to raise money to fight breast cancer

The Susan G Komen 3 Day starts this morning in Commerce Township.

It's a 60-mile walk through Metro Detroit to raise money to fight breast cancer.

Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, all while educating tens of thousands of people about breast health with every step.

Events like the 3-Day and Komen Race for the Cure® have helped Komen invest more than $2.8 billion to fulfill its promise to save lives and end breast cancer.

Since 2004, the Michigan 3-Day has raised more than $56 million in the fight to end breast cancer.

The 2017 Susan G. Komen Michigan 3-Day will begin on August 5 at Walled Lake Western High School on 600 Beck Road Commerce Township and travel 60 miles through the Michigan area, concluding on August 6 at the Ford World Headquarters on One America Drive in Dearborn. 

You can support walkers at official Cheering Stations along the route. More information on these locations can be found at
