Teams bring family, friends and coworkers together to support a great cause, to celebrate breast cancer survivors, to honor the lives of lost loved ones…all while raising needed funds for life-saving breast health services and breast cancer research. Every team races for a reason. Every Race team makes a difference in the mission to save lives and end breast cancer.
Teams contribute to the event's spirit and sense of community. Through their fundraising efforts, teams also provide a significant source of revenue for the fight against breast cancer.
What is a Team?
Create a Team
When you create your team, you also register as the first member of that team, which makes you the Team Captain. As Team Captain, you’ll send email invitations to everyone you want to join your team. We encourage all teams to choose a creative team name.
Team Captain Resources
Race Day Team Photos: X-Large Teams will be contacted with their scheduled photo times at the Civil Courts building. All other team photos take place at Soldiers' Memorial on a first-come, first-served schedule beginning at 6:30 am.
