Fundraising Friday - NEW COCONUTS!

Maxine Przybylowicz and Karen Pearson are new to our team but not to the 3-Day event. 

Maxine, Karen and Victoria on event in 2013

This year is Karen’s 9th year participating in the 3-Day and Maxine’s 6th year.  They are mother and daughter. Karen will be walking and Maxine will be crewing this year.  Karen was injured in a car accident in December and has undergone knee surgery and weeks of therapy. However, she is determined to walk again this year.  She says she may be slower than usual but she will do it.  Any of you that have taken part knows that feeling, it's just something you have to do.  Karen wasn't sure she would be able to walk this year so she is behind in her fundraising. 

If you would like to donate to Karen, please click here


In support of a family that is very close to our hearts, please take a moment to pray for the Rubensons today. For those of you who are interested, Ward Church is going to live stream her celebration of life Thursday July 17th at 11:00 AM EST. You can access the stream at

In Abby's name, our team will be making a donation to Mott Child Life program.  If you would like to contribute, please contact Vanessa.

Fundraising Friday, with birthday cake!


Happy Fundraising Friday!  

Today I have an extra special request- 2 of the coconuts celebrated their birthdays this week and we want to party!

Marathon Coconut (Char) and Dancing Coconut (Heidi) are both veteran walkers on our team. They both share the hope that their children won't need to walk in their honor!  

Char during the Atlanta event in 2011.  This year Char is walking in the Dallas event, click here to wish her a happy birthday with a donation!

Heidi (and her mom) during the Atlanta event in 2011.  This year, Heidi is walking in the Twin Cities event, click here to wish her a happy birthday with a donation!

Thank you for all of your support!

60 days 'till 60 miles!

We are only 60 days away from walking 60 miles in the Michigan 3-day event!  Please help us reach our goal - the money raised gives us hope for a brighter future {without cancer}.

The future coconut pictured above is lucky to call her grandmother a survivor! 

75% of the net proceeds raised help support Susan G Komen's Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25% helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs. 

Thank you for giving us hope!


Participating in the 3-Day is an incredible experience. While we prepare (fundraising & training), we get a lot of questions about the journey. 

One popular questions is: "How long does it take to walk 60 miles?"

On average, we walk 20 miles each day. Measured in time, it is equivalent to a work day. Some walkers like to keep moving and get to camp early, while others stop to smell the roses. 

Thank you for your continued support!  

Do you have any questions?
