Team Basics

Forming a team is a great way to enhance an already incredibly meaningful experience. Teams come in all sizes from 2 friends and family members to a group of 100 employees. With the support of your team, training and fundraising is easier and multiplies the fun, laughter and your impact on the fight against ovarian cancer. A team can consist of a group of friends, co-workers, and family members who register, raise funds and participate together in support of a great cause. It is also an excellent opportunity for all small and large companies and organizations to  promote fellowship outside the work environment.

Team Member Registration

Each team member needs to register and pay the $35.00 registration fee to participate in run for her®. Go to the run for her®. "Homepage" and click "Register" and choose "Join a Team." To be included on your team's roster, each member must either register with your team name online at or complete a registration form coded with your official team name. Online registration closes on November 10th, afterwhich the registration fee will increase to $40.00.  Team member names are posted online to the team roster as soon as the registration form is processed. Team Captains can access the team roster by logging onto Team Page where they are able to add, remove, and update team member information.

Team Captains

Each Team Captain plays a significant role in the success of his or her team. Team Captains encourage participation and fundraising, as well as share important information about the event with their team members.  High energy, enthusiasm and good communication skills are important to taking on the role of Team Captain. When you register your Team, a Team Page will be created. We encourage you to personalize your Team Page to immediately begin collecting donations online. For larger teams, we suggest that you assign a Co-Captain.  Co-Captains will receive the same correspondence as the Team Captain and can communicate information to team members, assist in recruiting efforts and help team members with fundraising.

Fundraising Online

Remember, raising pledges is the key to furthering the fight against women's cancers. It is important that every participant raise pledges and we ask each run for her® team to set fundraising goals. Establishing a minimum goal of $250 per team member will ensure that your team makes a significant contribution to the mission of ending cancer as a threat to women. Once registered, a personal fundraising page will be created for each individual team member to activate and personalize. All contributions, including corporate matching gifts must be received by Friday, November 12, 2010 to be included in your team's fundraising total for the Top Fundraising Awards presented on event day.

Team Spirit

We ask that teams remember that run for her attracts many families and a wide array of individuals. If you are designing your own team t-shirts, please be considerate of others. No expletives or other offensive language or images. If you have any questions, please check with the run for her® Team Coordinator at (323) 866-6250. 

Team Signs

Team signs will be made for your team if the team is registered by Sunday, October 31st and consists of at least 5 team members.

Team Lounge

There will be a Team Lounge at the Finish Line Festival near the main stage where you can meet your team members and pick up your team sign before heading to the start line. After crossing the finish line, visit the Team Lounge to spend time with your team members, take your team photo and and enjoy a great view of the stage festivities.
