Teams

YOUR TEAM, YOUR IMPACT

Participating in the Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama Race for the Cure® with a team multiplies the fun, the laughter and maybe even the tears that you share on Race Day. Rally around someone you know who was just diagnosed, someone who has fought the battle, or someone who may have lost the battle. Together, with your friends, family and co-workers, you make an even greater impact than you could alone.

Teams are the heart and soul of the Race. They not only contribute to the event's spirit and sense of community, but also provide a significant source of revenue by raising large amounts of pledge dollars.

Team Captain Training Sessions are a great way for new Team Captains to receive the necessary information needed to build a successful Race for the Cure team!

Start Building Your Team Today!

Just follow these easy steps:

  • Choose a Team Captain
  • Give the team a name - make it fun if you want, we love clever team names
  • Register your team
  • Recruit at least 10 members (including the captain)
  • Set a goal, think BIG! and FUNDRAISE!
  • Run breast cancer out of town on October 11th!

One of your greatest resources is your Particpant Center that provides email templetes to recruit team members and request donations from friends & family! Directions for logging into your Participant Center are available here.

The Team Captain must register first and create the team before team members can join the team. A team is a group of 10 or more participants who register under a common team name. Any company, family, group of friends, club, community organization, school, or faith group can form a team. Team captains recruit team members for your team, encourage team participation and fundraising, and organize events for your team. You help your team members have the tools they need to raise donations and recruit more team members!
