Creating a race team is one of the most fun ways to participate in the Race for the Cure. Participating in the Susan G. Komen Orange County Race for the Cure® with a team increases the fun, the laughter, and maybe even the tears you share on Race day.
What is a Race Team?
A team is a group of 10 or more participants who register under a common team name to help end breast cancer forever. Any company, family, group of friends, club, community organization, school, or faith group can form a team.
Select the category that best describes your Team:
· Friends & Family
· Non-Profit Group - includes faith-based, educational and alumni groups
· Small Corporate Group - 50 employees or less
· Large Corporate Groups - over 50 employees
Why form a Race Team?
Did you know that every two minutes a new case of breast cancer is diagnosed in the U.S.? Help us fight back by forming a team in honor of in memory of someone you know impacted or touched by breast cancer. Together you can make an even great impact than you could alone. Teams can be of any size and team members do not have to participate in the same event. There is no extra cost to form or join a team. Teams must have a minimum of 10 Team Members to qualify for Team awards and prizes.
Multiply your impact, multiply your fun!
How do I start a Race Team?
It starts with a Team Captain! Team captains register the team, invite people to join, and help keep members inspired and informed of the team’s fundraising progress. Learn more about how to start a team by clicking here.
