Day Two of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, 60-mile event passed through Arlington Heights going west on Sigwalt Street, north on Ridge/Walnut Avenue, east on Euclid Avenue, north on Douglas Avenue, east on Olive Street and other streets on the northeast side of town. Lunch camp was stationed at Greens Park at Douglas Avenue and Olive Street. An air-conditioned Cardinal Bus (not affiliated with The Cardinal — was staged at Olive Street and Douglas Avenue. A Superior Ambulance was also staged at the lunch site.

Arlington Heights Fire Department had a support station, complete with misting station, at Arlington Heights Fire Station 1 on Sigwalt Street, just east of Arlington Heights Road.

Starting on Friday, participants walk approximately 20 miles each day until they reach the Closing Ceremony on Sunday afternoon.

Dale Emmerich, a firefighter from Middleton, Wisconsin is walking the 3-Day in firefighter bunker gear and carrying an SCBA (firefighter breathing air tank) minus the fire boots. Firefighter boots aren’t made for walking 60 miles.

The towns of Arlington Heights and Mount Prospect really came out for The 3 Day. I am humbled and amazed at the outpouring of support, compassion, and enthusiasm these folks have. Thank you so very much. You really know how to bring it. Tomorrow it wraps up at Soldier Field. Can’t wait to see the tears, smiles, and new friendships this last day presents. In it to end it.

— Dale R. Emmerich, Cancerfighter

Each participant is required to raise at least $2,300 to participate. Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® help support Komen’s global research program, the largest nonprofit source of breast cancer research funding outside of the U.S. government. These funds also support large public health programs that address critical issues in breast cancer treatment and care. The remaining 25 percent stays in your local community, providing funds for financial, social and medical needs of our neighbors.

According to the official Susan G. Koen 3-Day website, virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 30 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure® grant.

Pink fire engine “Jessica” is named for Jessica Bertulis, a 16-year-old Johnsburg High School junior who has suffered with bone cancer in her spine. Bertulis suffered paralysis, went through chemotherapy and physical therapy, and is able to walk with the help of a walker.
