The New Balance Cheerleaders at the Boston 3 Day Walk!

I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me to share the spectator and cheering information with you for the previous walks.  But if you are not participating as a walker in the Susan G Komen 3 Day for the Cure®, then you should at least head down and cheer the walkers on!

Most (if not all) walkers have dedicated several months of their life to prepare for walking 60 miles.  They have raised lots of funds, sweated, cried and laughed.  While I have not walked yet, I hear that the energy at cheering stations is amazing and really lifts the walkers up.  So please, if you live near a participating 3-Day city, then head out and cheer!
