Triangle Race for the Cure | June 14, 2014


YOUR TEAM, INSPIRING HOPE
 
Participating in the Susan G. Komen Wilmington or Triangle Race for the Cure® with a team multiplies the fun, the laughter and maybe even the tears that you share on Race Day. Together, with your friends, family and co-workers, you make an even greater impact than you could alone.

What is a Team

  • A team is any group of 10 people or more who want to participate in the Race as a group.
  • This group may consist of friends, family, co-workers, church and civic groups, schools, children or any combination thereof.
  • Team members do not have to participate in the same event.
  • A team can have participants in the same event or a combination of events (5K, 10K, 1 mile, sleep in, etc.).
  • there is no limit to the number of members you can have on your team.
  • Being part of a team is fun!

What is 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.
  • When starting your team, you are also registering yourself as the Team Captain
  • Once your team is created recruit team members, encourage your team members to fundraise, compete in the team competitions and have a great time at the Race.

Team Captain Checklist
Use this checklist as a reminder of your next steps and to help you keep track of your progress.

  • Start your Team by registering as a team captain.
  • Choose a unique team name. Avoid beginning it with “the” or “team” to avoid confusion with similarly-named teams.
  • Is your company willing to help with registration fees? Contact admin@komennctc.org for details.
  • Set a goal for the number of people you will recruit and your fundraising goal.
  • Host a kick-off meeting or event.

  • Create fundraising incentives so all your team members meet or exceed their goals.
  • Remind team members to log on to their fundraising pages to record all offline donations and send thank you notes.

Team T-shirts
Design a t-shirt to show your team spirit! Each team will have the opportunity to create a “special” t-shirt for their team. All shirts will be displayed on Race day. T-shirts must be submitted by 9:00 a.m. on Race Day. The winner will be announced at the Survivor Celebration Ceremony and will be on our website. Get the Official Teams T-shirt Insignias to add to your t-shirt!!! Click here for more information.

Team Fundraising
As the leader of your team, and therefore a leader in the fight to end breast cancer, it’s important for you to know and share with your team members the importance of fundraising. Simply registering and showing up on Race Day will raise awareness, but it's the fundraising dollars that will help find the cure.

One of the best ways to inspire your team members to fundraise is to lead by example and start fundraising yourself. To begin, view the fundraising tips. 

Team Awards
The ultimate reward is knowing you've brought our community miles closer to the reality of a world without breast cancer. But be sure to check out the Team Awards page for more information on how we thank our top performing teams!
