Tutus for Tatas™ is a team
of women & men who participate in the Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Taking place in 15 cities nationwide, Susan
G Komen3-Day for the Cure is a 3 Day, 60 mile walk that provides an opportunity to educate thousands of people about
breast cancer, including the importance of early detection.
The Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk
is a 20-mile a day walk throughout the streets of its host city. We live in a 3-Day Camp! We sleep in tents, shower in tractor-trailer
trucks and we have all perfected the "porta-pot squat"! We leave our families, our HAIRDRYERS & makeup behind
and concentrate on the issues of Breast Cancer! It's a celebration of life! Of Survival!
In 2010 we became one
of the first teams to surpass the ONE MILLION DOLLAR mark! We have LOTS of fun events that you can attend to help us
raise even more! All those events are covered on our events pages. Please browse around our site and watch for updates.
Here is a little Tutu history...Organized
in 2005 with just 28 women, Team Tutus raised over $90,000 and became friends for life! Promising to continue their friendships
and to continue walking, the 2010 Tutu Nation consists of 50 Atlanta members to date and growing. We even
have 2 members that are walking in ALL 15 Cities! To date, the total monies raised by team Tutus to fight Breast Cancer is
over $1 MILLION dollars!!!!!
The 2006 Tutus consisted of 75 women & men and raised over $230,000 making us
the #2 Team in the entire Nation! We range in age from 16 to 75 and come from all walks of life! We have a single unifying
thread and that is to Find A Cure!
Growing even larger in 2007, Team Tutus was 125 strong! Our
3 year cumulative total grew to well over ONE HALF MILLION DOLLARS with our goal now being to reach ONE MILLION!
As well as the commitment to walk, each
walker commits to raising a minimum of $2300. The 2007 Susan G Komen 3-Day for the Cure raised over 86 million dollars nationwide.The
money funds research & treatment. As the beneficiary of the 3-Day, all funds raised goes to Susan G Komen 3-Day
for the Cure. For more info on these organizations go to www.The3Day.org or call 1-800-996-3DAY.
The statistics are alarming with 1 in 8 women developing
Breast Cancer in her lifetime. Early detection and awareness is still our best defense so our mothers, daughters, sisters
& friends do not have to hear the frightening words that they too have breast cancer.
