Multiply your impact, multiply your fun!

Participating in the Susan G. Komen Ottumwa Race for the Cure® with a team increases the fun, the laughter and maybe even the tears you share on Race day.

Did you know that every two minutes a new case of breast cancer is diagnosed in the US? 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:

  1. Select the team captain: The captain must register first and create the team before members can join.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. 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.

There are two ways that teams can engage in fundraising:

  1. Each team member asks their friends, family members and co-workers to support them in their fundraising efforts by making a donation. To get tips and tools on personal fundraising, click here

Timed Team Challlenge

We encourage participants to gather co-workers and form a race team. For the fourth year, teams will be able to compete in a timed event, the Timed Team Competition. A minimum of 5 timed participants are needed to qualify for the overall Timed Team Award. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd overall teams will be recognized. The 1st place team will also receive a trophy recognizing Excellency. Team awards will be based on the percentage of the company’s total employee participation. The top three teams in each category will receive an award. Categories will be based on the number of participants. Categories are: 25 or fewer; 25-50; 51-100; more than 100.
