susan G Komen 3-day walk for the cure?

I am captain of a team and I was trying to find a list of things we would need to pack however and I have no idea how the walk goes because I honestly have never done it, noone on our team has either…but I was wondering if anyone on here had done the walk and knew what was provided and what isn’t

Go to their website –

www.komen.org

They have lot of information about the walk, and FAQs and help.

Good for you and good luck with your walk! 🙂

What do you suggest bringing to the 3-Day breast cancer walk?

I’m thinking about participating this year in August, and want to know in advance what I should bring. I’m aware they give you a tent, but what else should we bring? I will be participating with three others, so there is four of us total.

Thank you in advance!

Avon’s website has recommendations on what to bring. You will need a waist pack with water bottles, plenty of socks (plan on changing socks at least twice a day). Corn starch to help keep your feet dry. Vaseline for arm pits (Yes it sounds gross but your pits will chafe and it works). Antipersperant for your feet (yes it keeps em dry!)

Comfortable clothes to walk in. a second pair of walking shoes, slippers or uggs to wear around camp. A lightweight jacket for nights in camp. Sleeping bag, personal hygeine (don’t bother with makeup), Sunscreen, a wide brimmed hat….Sleeping bag, air mattress or closed cell pad, pillow.

I’ve done two Avon Walks, I walked in the very first walk from Santa Barbara to Malibu and one in Washington State.
