Komen Three-Day Walk kicks off in Del Mar
Hundreds of people motivated to fight breast cancer participated in the annual Komen San Diego Three-Day Walk fundraiser recently. The trek covered a total of 60 miles and started at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Nov. 15. The event finished with a celebration Sunday afternoon, Nov. 17, at Petco Park.
The SGK Breast Cancer Foundation selected En Fuego in the Del Mar Village as the “first official water donation & cheer station.”
Walkers were required to raise at least $2,300 to participate.
Organizers say the walkers usually raise an average of around $3,000. The walk is the second major event for Susan G. Komen for the Cure this month in San Diego. About 14,000 people took part in the 17th annual Race for the Cure 5K on Nov. 3.
