After parking in the parking deck adjacent to Macy’s, accessed from Lenox Rd, participants will walk towards the front of the mall to the event site. If you plan to walk, are registered and have not fundraised for your t-shirt or have already picked up your t-shirt, you do not have to check-in. Unregistered visitors can register using a convenient QR code sign or paper registration. T-shirt pickup is located on-site at the front of Lenox Square facing Peachtree St. Survivors can go to the Survivor Check-In area to pick up their shirt and receive a wristband to enter Hope Village.
Before you walk, visit the sponsor tents, learn more about breast cancer and Komen’s commitment to saving lives through our four pillars: Research, Care, Community and Action at our Pillar Tents. Stop by the We Remember Tent for a moment of reflection or to honor a loved one. Visit our selfie wall and take some photos to commemorate the day make sure to hashtag #MoreThanPink #ONEKomen on your social media pics and HAVE FUN!
MORE THAN PINK Walk T-shirts will be given to all individuals who have fundraised $100 or more as well as all Survivors and those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). If you didn’t pick up your shirt on September 24 or 25, you will receive it at the Walk at Lenox Square on October 9. Shortly thereafter, t-shirts will be mailed to qualified participants who were unable to pick them up before or during the Walk.
