Tomorrow is the day

Well, it's finally here. The San Francisco Breast Cancer 3-Day! Tomorrow begins the weekend for the Camp Logistics team which is an advance team sent ahead of the walkers and other crew in order to build the camp. Walkers and crew alike will sleep, eat, and shower at camp among other things. In their spare time, walkers can also enjoy the Camp Services area where they can send messages to people, lounge in some chairs with magazines, or get a massage from the Engergizer sponsored tent. So for the Camp Logisitics team, this is really the 4-Day!

Weather is expected to be amenable for the weekend. Layering is recommended as San Francisco has about 23 micro-climates. Camp will be situated near a body of water so the cold could be a factor especially at night. Day time highs are expected to be in the upper 60s for Thursday and Friday with a bit of cooling on Saturday and Sunday.

For those of you who are coming out to support the walkers, check for spectators cheering sections along the route!

Good luck to all the walkers! Camp Logistics will be rooting for you!

3-Day Season is in the Air

The Breast Cancer 3-Day season is well under way. Cities like Cleveland, Denver, and Seattle have kicked off the tour with a bang. Today, the San Diego event preps the crew by hosting Crew Extravaganza along side the Expo which will show walkers what to expect during event. If people think that this event just magically happens, what they don't realize is all the preparations that go into getting ready. Early in the year, walkers are encouraged to start training to build stamina and endurance to go about 20 miles a day. Crew captains who help manage the event have to prepare their plans and teams. Event coordinators have to get permits and licenses to host the event. While 3-Day season lasts about 4 months, the preparations take almost the whole year. The most important thing is that all this prep work ends up raising millions of dollars that will go to breast cancer research and awareness.
