Friday evening, they celebrated finishing the first day at . They got massages and foot rubs, relaxed in their own bright pink tent, enjoyed a shower on one of the shower trucks, and enjoyed dinner and entertainment.
Some also stopped by the Remembrance Tent, a place to reflect on those lost to breast cancer. Many wrote notes on the white tents decorated with large pink ribbons.
According to Northeast Ohio Komen for the Cure, last year's 3 Day raised $2.5 million.
Theresa Ogonek of Akron added the Komen pink to her look by dying her hair pink and wearing a bright pink tutu.
"My sister-in-law was diagnosed really young, and she has two daughters," Ogonek said when asked about her inspiration. "Thankfully, she's in remission."
Thoughts of others were on the minds of many walking.
"I'm walking so my daughter doesn't have to face getting (breast cancer) or watch losing her friends to it," said Maura McLinden of Cleveland, who was part of the "Breast Buds" team with Anne Bader, Patti Donofrio, Katy Gibbons, Katie Drabic and Kendra Adams.
"I lost my mom to it," Bader said. "My sister has it. One of my best friends has it. I'm going to walk until no one has it."
