Do I get a t-shirt?
All participants who raise a minimum of $100 will receive a commemorative fundraiser t-shirt.
All survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer will receive a special t-shirt recognizing their role in our event regardless of fundraising level or status. Registered survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer who raise $100 or more will receive two shirts a pink survivor shirt and a gray fundraiser shirt.
Register and fundraise early to receive your shirt before event day!
How will I get my t-shirt?
We are now mailing all shirts for $100+ fundraisers, survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer.
In order to receive your shirt in time for Walk day, you must register and/or fundraise $100+ by Sunday, August 27, 2023 at 11:59pm Central. Survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer who register, and participants who raise $100, after Sunday, August 27, 2023 will receive your shirt(s) by mail after the event. The final cut-off date for participants to raise $100 and receive a shirt is Sunday, October 22, 2023.
Shirts are being mailed via USPS. As with any shipping provider, delays may occur.
Please note: there will be no t-shirts available for pick up either pre-event or on event day. Thank you for your commitment to Susan G. Komen and our efforts to simplify our t-shirt process.
Why are all t-shirts being mailed this year?
Mailing all shirts guarantees you will get the size you requested. Additionally, the new program will cut down on waste and will allow for cost savings, ensuring more of your fundraising dollars are directed to Komen’s lifesaving mission.
Do donations made to a team qualify team members to receive fundraising shirts?
No. Individual team members must have at least $100 in their individual fundraising accounts to qualify for a fundraising t-shirt. Donations to a team do not count toward individual team member fundraising.
We look forward to celebrating with you on Sunday, September 24, 2023

Susan G. Komen's work would not be possible without our fundraisers. It is our honor to recognize those fundraisers who go above and beyond with their efforts and their support — our top Individuals and Top Teams.
Top Fundraisers — Individuals who raise $1000+
On event morning, follow the Top Fundraiser signs to the area reserved just for you! You’ll be gifted a special Top Fundraiser item to help you stand apart from the crowd and we invite you to pop in and enjoy complimentary snacks and drinks provided by generous local partners.
Your Walk T-shirt
All top fundraisers will earn this year’s commemorative event shirt because you raise well over the $100 goal to earn a shirt. To guarantee your shirt arrives in time for you to wear it on Walk morning, you must have raised your first $100 by Sunday, August 27, 2023 at 11:59pm Central.
How far is the Walk? 1 mile and 2 mile routes are available

On Sunday, September 24, 2023, we will walk for the people who can't: For those too weakened by treatment to join. For those who are suffering. For those we have lost. Together we will fight back against breast cancer.
