San Diego hosts two premier events each year that support the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which uses proceeds from the events to fund breast cancer research, screenings and awareness. The hugely popular Race for the Cure is a 5K walk/run through downtown San Diego that takes place in early November each year and attracts a big crowd of pink-clad participants. Many of the runners, joggers and walks are motivated to complete the 3.1 miles in support of a family member or close friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer or because they themselves have suffered from it.
While the Race for the Cure is great way to support the Susan G. Komen Foundation, those who want to make an even bigger splash sign up for the 3-Day. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a 60-mile trek through San Diego that is spread over three consecutive days. Participants are tasked with raising $2,300 for the foundation to earn the privilege of walking an average of 20 miles a day from the start on Friday until the finish line on Sunday.
