All-volunteer crew members, like Michael Langowski of Chicago recognized as the backbone of the event
Chicago – may 2, 2008 – From serving meals to picking up trash, providing medical assistance and filling water bottles, the all-volunteer crew is vital to the success of the Breast Cancer 3-Day. In honor of National Volunteer Week, April 27-May 3, the Breast Cancer 3-Day recognizes the hundreds of men and women who devote four days to ensure each walker completes the 60-mile journey.
Taking place in 14 cities nationwide, the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a series of three-day, 60-mile walks that raise millions of dollars for breast cancer research, education, and community outreach programs. Throughout the event participants receive everything they need for an enjoyable experience: hot meals, snacks galore, medical assistance, sleeping tents, entertainment and even transportation for tired feet. As most of these services are provided by Breast Cancer 3-Day crew members, the event would not be possible without their commitment.
