YOUR TEAM, YOUR IMPACT

Participating in the Susan G. Komen Evansville Tri-State 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.

Form a Team     Join a Team

The Team Captain must register first and create the team before team members can join the team. To be considered for team awards, you team must consist of 10 or more individuals. Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else who would like to join. Download your 2013 Team Captain Tool Kit Now!

Team registration for award consideration will end on September 13; however, general registration will remain open until Race day. After September 18, people cannot register on a team, but rather as an individual. They can still walk and participate along with a team.

Fundraising is Easy with Online Tools!
When you register for the Race you automatically receive your own fundraising web site. 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.
