Do I get a t-shirt?
All participants who raise a minimum of $100 will receive a commemorative event 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 participant shirt.
Register and fundraise early to guarantee you’ll 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 April 16, 2023 at 11:59pm Central. Survivors and those living with metastatic breast cancer who register, and participants who raise $100, after April 16, 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 June 11, 2023.
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 the 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.
We’re working on scheduling some fabulous activities now! Check back later for all the details.

For people with cancer or those with compromised immune systems, the CDC and NCCN (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) still recommends wearing a mask, social distancing, washing your hands, avoiding crowds, and other preventive measures.
On Saturday, May 13, 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.
