No summary paragraph submitted.

The Breast Cancer 3-Day in Atlanta will start on Friday morning, October 20th and end with Closing Ceremonies on Sunday afternoon, October 22nd. Thousands of walkers will cover about 20 miles a day, traveling at their own pace. The walkers will be supported by hundreds of volunteer crew members who will provide meals, water and snack stops, gear transport, hot showers, portable restrooms, safety on the streets, and comprehensive medical services.

In order to participate, each walker must train for the event and must commit to raising a minimum of $2,200 (many walkers will raise more than the minimum). To help prepare for the Breast Cancer 3-Day, each walker is supported by coaches who assist in all aspects of training and fundraising. Clinics, meetings, training sessions, and mailings provide ongoing support.

All Georgia Tech faculty, staff, students, and alumni are encouraged to either join Team Buzzz or form their own team. Please contact Ramel at, or 404.894-2321 for more information about Team Buzzz.

Those wishing to help Ramel reach her goal can make a donation directly to her donation page online at To learn more about the Breast Cancer 3-Day, or to serve as a volunteer, visit or call (800) 996-3DAY.
