YOUR TEAM, MORE IMPACT

Participating in a Komen Race for the Cure® event 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.

Interested in becoming a Team Captain? Here’s how:

  1. Start your team: Select “Start a Team” from the Race registration page and enter the team name you’ve chosen. Your team name can be as serious or as fun as you’d like! Continue on with your own personal registration, adding any additional family members one-by-one prior to completing the registration. Once complete, you’ll be registered for the Race and noted as the Team Captain.
  2. Invite others to join your team: Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else who would like to join. The goal is 15 team members.
  3. Tell your story: Teams receive an additional fundraising page that friends and family can visit to find a team member or give a donation that supports the fundraising efforts of the entire team. Personalize your Race fundraising website. Use it to tell people why you Race.
  4. Win incentives: During July, August and September there will be special fundraising weeks where we award prizes to the top fundraising teams. There are great rewards (Nebraska Husker football tickets; $100 gift cards; local restaurant gift cards; Creighton sports tickets and more) that you and your team can win.
