Mohawk Provides Support for 2022 Komen 3-Day Series

Calhoun, GA, August 29, 2022-A partner of Susan G. Komen for over 20 years, Mohawk will continue to cushion the fight against breast cancer during the 2022 Komen 3-Day Series. 

This year, Mohawk is not only donating more than 5,000 SmartCushion pads to comfort walkers and crew members, but it is also teaming up with retail partners in each city to host a celebratory lunch to mark the halfway point-the completion of 30 miles, which is a huge feat for the walkers.

 Mohawk will be attending all four events in the Komen 3-Day Series, which will be held in Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and San Diego. SmartCushion, along with Mohawk-branded sun shelters, will be available for seating at lunchtime. The cushion will also be placed under sleeping bags nightly at camp in San Diego. Additionally, Mohawk donates bright pink carpet runners for the “Mohawk Mile”. The Mohawk Mile is a path lined with cheer teams that leads and encourages walkers to the finish line each day of the walk. 

One of Mohawk’s behind-the-scenes roles at the 3-Day events is cleaning up the used SmartCushion pads. SmartCushion from each 3-Day is recycled into new padding through ReCover, Mohawk’s recycling program. Since its inception in 2006, ReCover has diverted more than 100 million pounds of carpet and cushion from landfills. In 2019, Mohawk recycled more than 30,000 pounds of cushion from 3-Day events.
