Participating in the Susan G. Komen Southwest Michigan 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.
In order to start a team, Team Captain's must register first and create the team before other team members can join the team. A team is comprised of 5 or more individuals. Teammates can be friends, family members, co-workers, or anyone else who would like to join.
Set Up Your Team Online!
You will need to register your team online so that you can recruit team members, collect pledge/donations, track your team’s progress and communicate with your team. Team members will not be able to join your team until you have set the team up online.
