MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Susan G. Komen Twin Cities 3-Day has raised $2 million for breast cancer research and community outreach programs, the organization announced Monday.

Nearly 1,000 people took part in the 60-mile walk, which ended Sunday at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Walking 60 miles is no easy feat, but we walk because we can and because it matters,” said Sheri Prentiss, national spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®. “We are humbled by the strength of these Susan G. Komen Twin Cities 3-Day participants and so thankful for their continued support as we fight to end this disease.”

Seventy-five percent of the proceeds from the walk will go toward Komen’s research and training grant program. The other 25 percent goes toward local outreach programs.
