Opening Ceremonies

Please leave a comment if you plan to cheer at the opening ceremony so we can find you.

Opening Ceremony

The Breast Cancer 3-Day begins early Friday morning with the Opening Ceremony. There will be a group stretch to warm-up the body, and inspirational speakers who will warm-up the spirit - all leading up to an exciting and emotional send-off!

This celebration is not just for participants. Friends and family are highly encouraged to attend, though please note that seating will not be available, so if you are unable to stand for 30-60 minutes, you may want to bring a folding chair. Please allow extra travel time due to expected traffic congestion at the site.

After the Opening Ceremony is over, participants will begin walking the 60-mile route and start a journey of a lifetime. It will be even more special if you are there to help send them off with smiles and encouragement. We'll also have a Breast Cancer 3-Day gear store on site if you'd like to purchase a souvenir for yourself or your participant.
