The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is coming to Pinellas County on Friday, Oct. 26 to Sunday, Oct. 28.

Tampa Bay residents are encouraged to visit designated sites to cheer on 3-Day participants as they raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. These individuals spend months training for the event’s physical demands and fundraising of at least $2,300 to help fund breast cancer research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs. All of the participants’ dedication and preparation culminates by walking 60 miles over the three days.

“The Komen 3-Day participants invest a lot of time and energy into their three-day, 60-mile journey,” said Sheri Phillips, national spokeswoman for the event. “We often hear from participants how grateful they are for the community support they receive while on event, and what a difference it makes.”

The schedule for the 3-Day is as follows:

Friday, Oct. 26

• Opening ceremony – 7:30 a.m. at Sand Key Park, 1060 Gulf Blvd., Clearwater
