The Breast Cancer 3-Day Marathon along Beach Drive


On Sunday, September 9 from 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. we will witness a sea of pink as marathoners parade down Beach Drive to support breast cancer.  The Breast Cancer 3-Day is probably one of the largest events for breast cancer (at least that I’m aware of).    The marathons walk on average 20 miles a day to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer. 

Our neighborhood is Day 3 of this event and this is a wonderful opportunity to pull up a lawn chair and cheer these ladies and gentlemen on.   

"Cheering Stations are a great way to show your support along the route to encourage participants and let them know that you are with them every step of the way. Seeing familiar faces cheering them on can provide that extra burst of energy that gets them to take that next step or go the next mile. Create banners, hold up signs, bring some music and make some noise – anything to make them smile, get energized and keep walking. Note: The “Last Chance Cheering Station” (on Day 3) is your last chance to see your walkers before you are reunited with them at Closing Ceremonies."

The Last Chance Cheering Station is at Alki Beach.

So many lives are touched by this disease, let’s get out and show our support!
