Only 21 Days Away and GOOD NEWS is Coming Your Way!!

We are THRILLED to report the best news that we have had since we all set forth on this journey

………........................wait for it…........................………

We are proud to announce that ALL members of Team New Kids on the Walk have now reached our minimum required fundraising goal!

HUGE Thank Yous to each of your who helped us reach our goal! This means we all get to walk and no longer have to worry about the fundraising side of this challenge. This does NOT mean we are no longer accepting financial support. We will absolutely continue to accept contributions that will go toward saving lives and curing cancer! After all, that is what this is all about!

We are clearly in the home stretch of our training for the 3 Day! We have now hit our peak distance and now taper off a bit from here till the actual event. We are quickly approaching the postmark deadline for any FAN MAIL that you may want to send us as we walk. Any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated throughout the 60 miles! A brief reminder:

Write a letter expressing your love and support to your walker. Send it to our P.O. Box, and we'll collect the letters and deliver to them on the event at the Breast Cancer 3-Day camp. Send letters to:

Breast Cancer 3-Day Post Office
880 Marietta Hwy. Suite 630

Roswell, GA 30075

Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than October 13th in order to ensure delivery. Any mail that is not retrieved by the participant by November 6th will be destroyed.

The 3 Day org has also released the Spectator Information for the Atlanta 3 Day. All of the materials we received when we first signed up for this crazy adventure always mentioned that spectator information would be released close to the date of our walk. Now that this info has been released it is another reminder that our time has arrived! If you are in the Atlanta area (or in the cases of Mama Smith and Mama Latino are flying in especifically for this), here is the info you will need in order to come join us for opening or closing ceremonies or to come cheer us on at a Cheering station! PS: Costumes and Signs are welcomed and ENCOURAGED at all cheering stations!
