Form a Team

Girl Power

Team Award

Walk with your sisters, best friends, co-workers and buddies and raise money for breast cancer programs!

  1. Five or more women make a team – the more the merrier!
  2. ID a team leader and select a team name. Create your team online and your teammates can become part of the team when registering. The Team Captain can also administer her team online and add people to her team after they have registered. (Note: Be sure that your team uses the correct team name, i.e., Team ABC is different than ABC Team. Each teammate signs up individually, online, via mail or in person, and picks-up bib individually.)
  3. Spread the word! Use one of our team tools to help get the word out with your co-workers, friends and family:
    • Team poster: fill in your team captain information and team name and share around your workplace.
    • Team graphic (coming soon): link this graphic to the AKRFW registration page and send to your prospective team members.
    • Tips for managing your team online (coming soon!).
    • Fundraising Tips (coming soon).
  4. Have fun! Wear coordinating t-shirts, crazy hats or a feather boa – show your support for breast cancer programs. Read more “Helpful Team Tips” here.
  5. Sponsor and decorate a Port-a-Potty. This is a great way to bring your team spirit to this wacky and popular part of the Run.
  6. Team awards are given for: Most Money Raised and Largest Team.
