The Breast Cancer 3-Day supports its participants before the event by providing knowledgeable coaches, training assistance, fundraising advice, and a personal fundraising webpage. During the Breast Cancer 3-Day, participants are provided with three meals a day, snacks, liquids, mobile showers, port-a-potties, tents to sleep in, safety guidelines, and 24-hour medical support.
Each participant raises a minimum of $2,200, and the net proceeds fund breast cancer research and community outreach programs.
