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, September 10, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Central. Survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer who register, and participants who raise $100, after Sunday, September 10, 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, November 5, 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're working on scheduling some fabulous activities now! Check back later for all the details.
