The LIVESTRONG Honor 5K and 10K strives to bring individuals together for a common goal and what better way to do this than to start your own team! No one should fight cancer alone. As a team, you are running, walking, honoring and fundraising alongside people you care for all in the fight against cancer. While honoring those cancer warriors in your life, we encourage you to fundraise together to help those in the fight now.
Once you've created your team, start building it! Let your family, friends, and coworkers know you’re participating in the event and you want them to join you. You don’t all have to participate in the same distance, so encourage them to sign up for either the 5K or 10K. Challenge each other to a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds for LIVESTRONG, or work together and host a fundraising event. You can earn individual and team fundraising incentives!
Corporate teams are a great way to engage employees and give back to the local community. Create a corporate team for your office and get your coworkers out on the course! Teams that fundraise $2,500 or more receive a banner at the finisher's chute which could be an advertising opportunity for your corporation. Please contact us at TEAMLIVESTRONG@LIVESTRONG.org for more information about getting your company registered.
Belong to a running club? Encourage everyone to join the LIVESTRONG Honor 5K/10K as your weekly meet up! Please contact us at TEAMLIVESTRONG@LIVESTRONG.org for more information about getting your running club registered.
Teams that collectively raise $1,000 or more or recruit 20 or more team members will earn a team tent in the LIVESTRONG runners' village. Through this incentive, we will provide your team with a tent, table and chairs on event day.
Teams that collectively raise $2,500 or more or recruit 50 members will also earn a custom team banner in the finisher's chute dedicated to the cancer warriors in their lives.
The deadline to qualify for these incentives is August 24, 2018.
Teams have the opportunity to earn special awards for their participation in the LIVESTRONG Honor 5K and 10K. 2018 team award categories include:
* Fastest time will be based on combined times of the 5 fastest individuals on your team.
“Being a team captain for the event was both fun and rewarding…Everyone on the team was impacted by cancer in one way or another, and I think it was a great way to pay tribute to those dear to them.” -Greg Ward, Captain of Team Beat It
