Cheering Stations and Closing Ceremonies

October 23rd, 2008 by Kristen Cincotta

In case anyone in the Atlanta area would like to come out and support Kelly and I this weekend, here is all of the information about the Cheering Stations and Closing Ceremonies from the Supporter Information section at the 3-Day website. If you want to read the full Supporter Guide, I have linked to it over on the right hand side of the page.

Cheering Stations

Cheering Stations are a great way to show your support along the route to encourage walkers and let them know that you are with them every step of the way. Seeing familiar faces cheering them on can provide that extra burst of energy that gets them to take that next step or go the next mile. Create banners, hold up signs, bring some music and make some noise – anything to make them smile, get energized and keep walking.

Closing Ceremony

After three days and 60 miles, participants will take a final and incredibly emotional victory walk into the Closing Ceremony. Friends, family and supporters should arrive at the Closing Ceremony site at least one hour early to get the best view of the program. Please allow extra travel time due to expected congestion at the site. 

All walkers and crew members should remain in the Participant Holding Area where they will receive a victory shirt, cheer on fellow walkers and crew members and celebrate one last time together before their dramatic victory walk. The Participant Holding area is CLOSED to spectators. If you wish to meet with a participant before the Ceremony begins, please have them meet you at the Closing Ceremony site. All participants must return to the Holding Area no later than 5:00 pm in order to join the victory walk.
