Help paint Del Mar pink as the Susan G. Komen 3-Day comes to town on Nov. 15

Every year Del Mar village transforms into a cheering station for the 3-Day walkers.

The Del Mar Village Association is rallying a crowd of well-wishers to cheer on the more than 2,000 anticipated walkers that will pass through the heart of Del Mar Village on Friday, Nov. 15 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. as the San Diego Susan G. Komen 3-Day kicks off.

This cheering station is an annual outpouring of support from the community that welcomes the walkers with pink balloons and ribbons. Cheerleaders from Torrey Pines High School, the Del Mar Lifeguards, business owners and community residents line the streets to cheer the event participants on their journey while handing out water, goodies and collectible commemorative buttons.
