Start a Team

To get started, follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1 Select the team captain. The captain must register first and create (or re-form) the team before members can join.
  • Step 2 Choose a team name and team division that best describes your team. During registration, designate whether you are a friends and family, corporate or school team.
  • Step 3 Invite friends, coworkers and family to join you!  Email, Facebook or tweet everyone you know and invite them to race and fundraise with you.
  • Step 4 Set up your team web page. After you register, log in to your Fundraising Center to add a photo of your team, set a fundraising goal and tell everyone why you race for the cure.

2017 Team Captain Toolkit

  • Be BOLD
    • Make a donation of any size to show your commitment and kick off your fundraising efforts.
    • Set a goal for the number of people you will recruit for your team.
  • Be FEARLESS
    • Display event materials, such as brochures and posters, around your office, campus, cafeterias, break rooms, gyms, and other high-traffic areas. Include your name and contact information so people can easily get involved.
    • Host a kickoff meeting or event.
    • Send fundraising tips out to all your team members and highlight the team’s top fundraising member.
  • Be More Than Pink
    • Create fundraising incentives for your team members to encourage them to meet or exceed their fundraising goals.
    • Remind team members to log on to their fundraising pages to record all offline donations and send thank-you notes.
    • Post a progress chart with your fundraising and recruitment goals in a visible area and update totals regularly.

Team Fundraising

Every dollar you raise brings us closer to a future without breast cancer. And when you race with a team, you amplify your impact. How much will your team add to the movement?

Once you have your team in place, there are two ways to raise funds:

  • Each team member asks their friends, family and coworkers to make a donation. Visit our Fundraising 101 page for tips on personal fundraising.
  • Your team works together to host a fundraising event. Download our 101 Fundraising Ideas for fun and easy team fundraising events.
