Friends Fighting Cancer 5K Teams!

 

 

 

The saying that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts is so very true—and especially so with teams.

 

Members inspire each other to do the best they can. Teammates can train together, swap stories, strategize about fundraising, help each other through the tough times and celebrate the victories. Friends 5K teammates support each other and...they never forget their experience.

 

Start A Team! 

We invite you to start a Friends Fighting Cancer 5K team. It couldn't be easier! It just takes you and as many other people as you'd like to bring together. You can use any reason you like as the basis of your team: honor a cancer patient or survivor, support a family member, share the experience with the folks you work with, or honor the memory of a loved one - while motivating and inspiring yourself and others to contribute to a worthy cause. Remember:  Your teammates share only your specific reason for participating, but you're all working together for the same cause, to find a cure for cancer. Remember:  Your teammates share only your specific reason for participating, but you're all working together for the same cause, to find a cure for cancer.

 

You can start a team by following these simple steps:

**Know that the first person to start a team will be designated as the captain of that team.

In addition, if you’re the “more the merrier” type, you can allow people you don't know to join your team. (You will see this as an option when you complete your initial team registration, just click on the "hand" icon.) This way you can add to your numbers and meet some great new people along the way! In your HQ, a few other options that are available to you as team captain include being emailed when a new member joins your team, assigning a co-captain, and changing your fundraising goal.
