Participating in the Susan G. Komen North Mississippi Affiliate 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.
The deadline to register on a team is Friday, October 9 at 4 p.m. Central.
The Team Captain must register first and create the team before team members can join the team. A team is comprised of 10 or more individuals. Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else who would like to join. For step-by-step instructions on how to start a team, click here.
Example of the personal fundraising
Web page you automatically receive
when you register for the Race
Fundraising is Easy with Online Tools!
When you register for the Race you automatically receive your own fundraising website. Teams receive an additional Team fundraising page. Your Team page is a website 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 friends and family why you participate in the Race for the Cure. You can even accept donations online, right from your fundraising website. To make your page more dynamic, upload a link to a video clip or activate the blog feature. All of this and more is waiting for your Team once you register for the Race! Team fundraising for the Race is easy with online tools!
Team Captains have the ability to customize the Team website with a team photo and story.
Please note that individual fundraising DOES count toward the team total. This means that if you fundraise, you can record it on your personal fundraising page, and your personal totals go toward the team total. This allows team members to compete for both individual and team fundraising awards.
Creating your own team t-shirts? Great! Get creative, use your team name, and have fun! "Susan G. Komen" and "Race for the Cure" are trademarked names as well as the Susan G. Komen running ribbon logo. We encourage you to use the generic pink breast cancer ribbon on your t-shirts and any reference to the Race for the Cure as "race" or "5K Run." If you have questions, feel free to call us at 662-377-4903.
