Multiply your impact, multiply your fun!
Participating in the Susan G. Komen Baton Rouge Race for the Cure® with a team increases the fun, the laughter and maybe even the tears 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.
Did you know that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime? Help us fight back by forming a team in honor or in memory of someone you know impacted or touched by breast cancer. Together you make an even greater impact than you could alone.
Steps to start or join a team today:
- Select the team captain: The captain must register first and create the team before members can join.
- Choose a team name and team division that best fits your team. During registration, designate whether you’re a friends & family, corporate or school team.
- Invite friends, co-workers and family to join you! Email, Facebook or tweet everyone you know and invite them to register to Race with you.
- Set up your personal team web page. After you register, log in to your Participant Center to add a photo of your team, set a fundraising goal and tell everyone why you Race for the Cure.
Thanks to our 2014 Race Teams, we were able to grant $270,000 toward education, screening and treatment services right here in our community.
