In addition to his professional interests, Bob Juckniess supports the breast cancer awareness organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

One of Komen’s largest annual events is the Susan G. Komen 3-Day®, a 60-mile fundraising walk held in multiple cities across the nation. The 3-Day® program, which began 13 years ago, has raised more than $800 million for breast cancer research to date. The event is held in various cities each year, such as Atlanta, Seattle, and San Diego.

This year, new participants can either register for the introductory 20-mile walk for $750 or the full 60-mile walk for $2,300. Routes are consistently staffed by crewmembers to ensure participant safety and a positive environment. Walkers are expected to camp overnight as a group.
