Oh, the Letters...

If you have never participated in a Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure you don't know how important it is for friends and family to do the simplest thing ever... Send a walker or crew a letter of encouragement.  After walking or crewing the first day, to get back to camp.  Getting organized and your bed set up, then after eating and getting in a much needed shower.  To walk to the "Main Avenue" of tents to see if you have gotten any mail.  It is an Incredible feeling to have mail waiting there for you to read.  So here is some information that you may not know...
Before the Event:
Getting ready for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure® is a big job. Here are some ways to support your participant before the big day arrives.

Write a letter expressing your love and support to your walker/crew, which we’ll deliver to her/him on the event.
Send letters to:

3-Day for the Cure
ATTN: Malinda "Sunny" Sneary

P.O. Box 360  
Painesville, OH 44077

Envelopes only, please. No boxes or large packages. Mail must be postmarked no later than July 19th in order to ensure delivery at the 3-Day Camp Post Office. Please note: This address is not the actual location of camp, but a PO Box for mail delivery only. Any mail that is not received by the 3-Day by the date above or retrieved by the participant by August 14th will be destroyed.

You can now send your participant sweet dreams with a personal note and a sweet treat. For a $10 donation, you can send a personal message, along with a chocolate treat, to your participant at camp. Follow this link for more information and to send a “Sweet Dreams” treat. This is only available for a limited time, so please make your “Sweet Dreams” treat donation by July 15th.  
So, now I have given you a little bit more information as to what you can do to support your walker/crew.  I hope you will take the time to go and stuff your local post box with lots of letters of encouragement for your participant.  It really is a great feeling to have letters of encouragement waiting on you at camp!  So, what are you waiting for?
