Are you looking for info about the Susan G. Komen 3 Day For The Cure Preview Expo? I am very excited to announce that Energizer for the selected me as Cleveland’s Keep Going Blogger for the walk. They are providing a participation fee and I am sharing my experiences about what it’s like to prepare for, train for, and participate in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day For The Cure!
If you are a first time walker, I highly recommend attending an Expo in your area to alleviate any nerves you may have about walking. The Preview Expo was well-run, incredibly informative, and free!
I registered for the Expo online and printed out my ticket as instructed. When I arrived at check-in they took my ticket and that was it. They asked if Tired Dad Dave wanted to come in as well, all he had to do was sign in to attend, but he had work to do.
The Preview Expo took place from 11:00 am – 2 pm and was in a large indoor soccer arena. The field was divided up into about different sections. There were areas for outfitters, with New Balance having an impressive display of clothing, gear, and shoes all with a pink ribbon theme.
There were areas for demonstrations including tent assembly and a “What to Pack” workshop.
There was an inspiration section which included photo albums from past walks and a poster board filled with articles from local newspapers about 3-Day for the Cure events, fundraisers, and walkers.
There were many other displays as well including an area for fundraising ideas, a camp layout display, sign-making materials, a letter mailing table, and more.
Upon first walking onto the soccer field, I thought I would do one lap, attend the classroom workshops, and leave for the day, but the tables on the field kept drawing me in. Every time I thought I’d seen it all, another walker nearby would ask the volunteer working the table a question and I learn something new or I’d read a bit of info I missed the first time.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post…The 3-Day Preview Expo Workshops.
