Where to Cheer on 3-Day for the Cure Walkers

See where you can cheer on the participants who are walking for the cure this weekend.

Thousands of men and women will come together to trek 60 miles through southeast Michigan this weekend for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure.

Each walker has raised money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure to fund breast cancer research and community education, screening and treatment programs.

The walk begins in Novi on Friday morning and ends in Dearborn Sunday evening.

Friends and family are highly encouraged to attend the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as cheer on the walkers at designated cheering stations throughout the 60 miles.

As provided to the City of Northville, the route comes into town from Randolph Street, south on Wing Street to Main. East on Main through downtown, and then north on Griswold Street. The City has been told to expect the walkers between 7:45 - 10:45 a.m.

I should have said that I am from Plymouth and I had a note that said they would be walking by my house but not sure on the times. I was looking for a map of the path.

Traci, any ideas on who I could talk to at the city to get the path and times for Plymouth?

I would just like to say thank you to everyone who came out to cheer us on. This is my 4th 3 day walk and my son's second walk. I am from Kentucky and this weekend was my first visit to Michigan. I really want everyone out there to know how much your support meant to all of the walkers. You showed us kindness, love and appreciation and it was so nice to see all of your friendly smiling faces. Between the blisters, pain and weariness your hospitality kept us going. Up until this weekend I thought Mt. Prospect Illinois won the award for the most community support, but now I have changed my mind...it the kind people of Plymouth and the pink fountain!!!
