Bosom Buddies. Breast Friends. Hakuna ma tatas. Those are just a few of the more than 200 teams you can expect to see downtown at the Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 18.
Participating in the Komen Columbus 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 no longer be with us. Together with your friends, family and co-workers, you make an even greater impact than you could alone.
If you haven’t registered a team for the Race yet, what’s stopping you? Get started today.
The Race is quickly approaching and with it, lots of opportunities to get your team members motivated and working hard to raise funds to find the cures for breast cancer.
Turn your team members’ passion into even more action this year and qualify for any – or all! – of these pink perks.
Team Pep Rally. Raise $2,500 or more by Friday, April 12 and a Komen Columbus staff member or volunteer will come and speak to your team and provide pink items to get everyone excited about the upcoming Race.
Team Concierge Service. Raise $5,000 or more by Friday, April 26 and you’ll qualify for Concierge Service, which means a Komen Staff member or volunteer will personally deliver your teams’ t-shirts and Race packets directly to the team captain. (Team packets may be mailed depending on the captain’s location.)
Team Pink It Up. Raise $7,500 or more by Friday, April 26 and you’ll receive Concierge service, along with pink goodies for your team members to have. We’ll also include your team’s name and story on our blog.
Team Town. Want to make sure your team gets noticed on Race Day? The five teams that raise the most money, (at least $10,000 or more,) by Friday, May 10 will receive a 10×10 tent in our Team Town area on Race morning. You’ll be in the middle of all the action at the Statehouse and will receive complimentary coffee and snacks. Teams will be able to decorate their tents on Friday, May 17 and can use their tent as a meeting place for all members on Race Morning.
